Jade Kowalski - DAC Beachcroft
)
Jade Kowalski

Jade is a specialist data protection lawyer who advises clients across a number of different sectors. She advises on the full range of data protection issues such as complex data sharing arrangements, the use of cookies, marketing and the use of artificial intelligence. She is known for her practical, pragmatic approach to managing risk and ability to digest complex data protection issues into accessible, commercial advice.

Her full service practice includes:

  • Undertaking fully outsourced data protection compliance reviews;
  • Handling complex data subject requests;
  • Responding to and defending ICO investigations;
  • Designing appropriate data protection frameworks and accompanying policies and procedures; and
  • Providing strategic advice on data protection risk appetite and tolerance.

Jade has particular experience and expertise in advising clients in the insurance industry. She is a trusted adviser to clients across the sector including (re)insurers, brokers and industry bodies. Having spent a number of years on client secondment, Jade has a thorough understanding of the sector and is able to apply her legal expertise to its complex arrangements and data flows with ease. Her practical approach to problem solving and advising is highly regarded by clients.

Jade is a member of a number of insurance market data protection committees and, in the lead up to the implementation of the GDPR, was extensively involved in considering compliance at an industry level. In particular, Jade was jointly instructed by the Association of British Insurers (ABI) and the Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA) to work with Government on a new legal ground processing of special category data and information relating to criminal convictions in the insurance sector. She was instrumental in its inclusion in the Data Protection Act 2018.

Examples of insurance sector specific experience include:

  • Advising on data protection issues arising out of the use of aggregators in the distribution chain;
  • Leading a complex data protection impact assessment for a retail household insurer regarding the use of personal data for pricing; and
  • Advising on industry data sharing initiatives to tackle insurance fraud.
