Global law firm Reed Smith has announced the addition of Elle Todd in London. Previously a partner and Head of Digital and Data at CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang LLP, Elle has worked for the largest corporations and household names as well as technology start-ups and entrepreneurs.
"We are delighted that Elle has agreed to join us. She has a unique skillset, combining a deep knowledge of the consumer brands, tech and media sectors with digital and data compliance expertise. She has a global perspective and is hugely regarded by clients for her innovative and practical approach. Elle’s work, advising companies at board level on digital transformation and data compliance, perfectly complements the capabilities of our wider team,” said Gregor Pryor, co-chair of Reed Smith's global Entertainment & Media Industry Group. “Following on from the arrival last year of Ingrid Silver in London and Virginia Burgess in New York, the addition of Elle is part of our continuing drive to build what we hope will be the world’s best team of lawyers in the sector.”
Elle has particular expertise in data protection and strategy, as well as innovative technology deals. She also has significant experience working in Asia, where she helped set up the media, data and technology practice in the region for her previous firm. At Reed Smith, she will help drive the group’s growth ambitions across the APAC region.
