Tim Pitt Payne QC


Tim practices in information law, public law, local government law, and employment law.
Information law is a fast-moving area of the law, where legal principles often struggle to catch up with technological and social change.  Personal information is both a valuable asset and a essential tool when delivering public services; but its effective exploitation is a legal minefield.  Tim has extensive experience in this field in which he is widely recognised to be a leading expert.  Tim’s knowledge and experience mean that he is ideally placed to advise organisations of all kinds, both in the private and public sector, about novel and complex problems relating to their use of information.
Tim combines his work in information law with a wider practice in public and employment law, having practised in both of these areas throughout his time at the Bar.
