I am a past winner of the Financial Times ‘Legal Innovator of the Year’ award and Lawyer Monthly magazine’s ‘Data Protection Lawyer of the Year’ award. I’m rated as a leading data protection lawyer by the legal directories, including Chambers UK, Who’s Who Legal and Thomson Reuters Super Lawyers. I’m proud to be recognised by the Canadian Privacy Commissioner as a ‘Privacy by Design Ambassador’.

What the legal directories and the buyers of legal services say about me

The following quotes are taken from the legal directories, which rate and rank lawyers based on the feedback of clients given to the directories’ researchers:

Chambers UK 2014 says: ‘Stewart Room advises on the contentious areas of data protection law, and has rights of audience before all the higher courts. Clients call him fantastically charismatic, and say: He is a wonderful person to roll in to a high-level meeting. He is tremendously good at what he does.’

Chambers UK 2013 says: ‘Stewart Room mainly handles contentious data protection matters, including advising on cases against the UK Information Commissioner. He is the most impressive solicitor I’ve dealt with, states one source, while another says that he is commercially savvy, with an excellent understanding of information law – he is an excellent, first-rate, tactical lawyer.’

Chambers UK 2012 says: ‘Stewart Room is the kind of lawyer who inspires confidence and is an expert in advising on security breaches.’

Chambers UK 2011 says: ‘Stewart Room has enviable technological expertise and brings his skills as a barrister to bear on contentious matters. Clients praise him as rigorous, dynamic and always aware of the technological issues.’
