Peer review:

I have known Ziva from many years of trust litigation and I can truthfully say that she is probably more committed in her work for her clients than anyone else I know. She is a shrewd tactical thinker and is not worried if she is asked to do more work than ought to be possible in anyone’s working day. In sum a class act, and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Peer review:

Ziva is a seriously impressive individual. Her clients adore her and she is the ultimate expert on UNHW matters. She’s a pleasure to know and will undoubtedly drive McDermott’s private client practice to new heights. Very well done.

Access to information under Data Protection Act

Ziva and her team acted for a beneficiary of a Bahamian trust and her adult children in the landmark Court of Appeal case of Dawson-Damer v Taylor Wessing. The case was brought by Ziva’s clients pursuant to the Data Protection Act. Taylor Wessing, as data controller, is the legal representative of a trustee (or former trustee). The client made subject access requests under Section 7 of the DPA to Taylor Wessing in the context of a trust dispute in the Bahamas. Taylor Wessing declined to respond to those requests, relying on legal privilege as a general answer. The High Court found in favour of Taylor Wessing, a judgment we subsequently overturned in the Court of Appeal this year. The Court of Appeal ordered Taylor Wessing to comply with their obligations under the DPA, rejecting their arguments on privilege and the role of solicitors as agents for their clients.

The case also involved highly significant, first-of-their-kind issues relating to beneficiaries’ rights of information and the interplay of those rights with the Data Protection Act, showcasing Ziva’s expertise in the most complex of cases. In addition, the team were directly opposing Band Two ranked Taylor Wessing as defendant, highlighting the level at which this team operates.
