Director joins the firm’s Legal Services Data Protection team.
KPMG’s Legal Services team has grown its headcount with a new hire as it continues to evolve its service offering.
Isabel Ost joins as Director in the Legal Services Data Protection team, where she will be responsible for developing and leading the firm’s data protection practice.
Prior to this Isabel spent eight years at Clyde & Co, where she developed its data protection offering and previous to that held an in-house role at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence (previously Detica).
She will join the 130-strong Legal Services team in the UK, headed up by Nick Roome, and will be predominately based out of the firm’s London office.
Nick Roome, Head of Legal Services at KPMG in the UK said: “We have been actively recruiting for new hires in recent months, and are pleased to welcome Isabel, who will play an important role in helping us expand our pool of expertise and services we offer.
“Isabel brings deep knowledge and experience in the data protection market, and will continue to help us – as a firm – develop a more holistic approach to supporting clients with data and privacy issues which typically require a blend of legal and consulting capabilities.”
Isabel Ost, Director of Data Protection, Legal Services, said: “KPMG has a strong cyber and privacy consultancy offering. So, as the firm’s legal services continue to grow, it makes sense to bring these teams even closer, providing a fully integrated service where clients can access exceptional legal advice. I’m looking forward to being part of the team and driving forward the firm’s work in this space.”
