Deloitte names new partner in its legal privacy practice

Cavan will oversee the delivery of pragmatic, business-focussed legal solutions across all aspects of privacy compliance, from the implementation of compliance programmes to enabling data transfers and dealing with data breaches or enforcement actions by authorities.

Deloitte has announced the appointment of Cavan Fabris as a partner in its legal data privacy practice with a focus on data privacy, cybersecurity, and telecoms.

Cavan will be based in London and brings more than 25 years of industry, government and legal experience, most recently with EY where he was a director specialising in data privacy, cybersecurity, telecoms and AI law.

Prior to this, Cavan was an economic and commercial diplomat for the US Department of State, and also held an in-house legal counsel role with Apple.

Joining Deloitte as a partner, the firm said Cavan will oversee the delivery of pragmatic, business-focussed legal solutions across all aspects of privacy compliance, from interpretation of new laws through to the implementation of compliance programmes, enabling data transfers and dealing with data breaches or enforcement actions by authorities.

Additionally, Cavan will combine his expertise in these areas with the technical knowledge from Deloitte’s specialist cyber risk practice, as well as more broadly across the firm’s extensive multidisciplinary network.

Cavan will add to Deloitte Legal’s existing leading market specialisms in all aspects of technology and data. The appointment is the latest indication of Deloitte’s continued investment and growth in legal technology.

Michael Castle, managing partner for Deloitte, said: “The need for legal services across every type of digital risk is greater than ever. The consequences for not getting it right could be highly disruptive with long-lasting impact, and our clients need the specialist legal, technical and industry knowledge that these areas demand.

“We are listening to our clients. Cavan has a wealth of experience in privacy and cybersecurity as a legal discipline, having worked across both public and private sectors. His appointment joins the dots between Deloitte’s legal expertise and the firm’s technical privacy and cyber risk business.”

Cavan added: “In an increasingly digital world, it’s never been more important for businesses to stay one step ahead of the risks that it exposes. The regulatory stakes, and potential consequences – be it reputational or financial – have never been greater.”
