The Channel Islands’ leading employment and health and safety specialist, Law At Work (LAW), has appointed Emma Martins to lead its new service providing data protection, privacy, governance, and ethics advice to business clients.
Emma has an impressive record of accomplishment and joins LAW as a specialist advisor. Working primarily at board level, Emma will use her experience and knowledge to guide senior executives in meeting their obligations.
Emma was appointed Guernsey’s Data Protection Commissioner in 2018 and had previously been the Commissioner in Jersey and Guernsey when the islands merged the role. Her term of office in Guernsey ended in December 2023.
Kelly Flageul, Group Chair, said: “Having known Emma for many years in a professional capacity, I am delighted that she has agreed to join the Law At Work team and launch this new service in our 20th year. Emma is highly regarded on the world stage, her moral compass, integrity, and commitment to making data matter will strengthen our team and offer our clients a valuable solution. She knows and understands the law and how it should be applied in both islands, so we’re confident she will be able to guide our clients and coach and mentor their people to navigate these important and sometimes challenging situations.”
