TLT associate named as UK female rising star by Law.com International


Emma Erskine-Fox, an associate in the Data, Privacy and Cybersecurity team at TLT, has been recognised as a leader in her field by Law.com International in its 2021 selection of the UK’s best up-and-coming female lawyers.

The powerlist is made up of 25 female lawyers – aged under 40 – who stand out from the rest of the market in their practice area. The final selection were judged on the quality of their client base; examples of driving forward the size or reputation of their practice area; the scale, significance and complexity of their deals; their client feedback and general market reputation; the standing of their mentor; and any other examples of career success and innovation.

Emma works with key clients in the financial services, digital and other priority sectors. She has made a significant contribution to raising the profile of TLT’s data privacy practice, winning important new work and high profile clients. She was mentored and particularly inspired by two female senior lawyers who gave her impressive female role models at an early stage in her career.

Client feedback demonstrates how valued Emma is by the people she works with – one describing her as “the way we would hope all our lawyers could be in the future.”

Emma Erskine-Fox says: “It’s fantastic to be included in this group of incredible impressive women working in law. It’s vital that firms support their up-and-coming female lawyers and provide environments in which women can realise their worth and capabilities and don’t feel scared of their own success. Attracting more women to senior positions will require a shift in mindsets for some and junior female lawyers are looking to leadership to set this example.”

With a particular interest in the impact of data protection legislation on emerging technologies, especially AI, Emma provides tailored expertise for her clients and is sought out for market commentary.
