Qualifying as a barrister in 2003, Orlagh ran her own legal practice for over 12 years, representing clients in almost two thousand court cases. She then started a legal technology company, developing the first mobile practice management platform for barristers, Briefed, as featured in the Apple iTunes store and Forbes magazine.
In 2013, building on her legal and technological expertise, Orlagh created a series of Masterclasses in Data Protection, delivering these in person and online throughout the U.K. and Ireland.
This led to the creation of Briefed’s unique portfolio of specialised GDPR training and consultancy.
A much sought after public speaker, trainer and workshop leader, Orlagh’s ability to interpret how GDPR legislation impacts on legal professionals has led to Briefed partnering with a number of Law Societies and Bar Councils throughout the UK providing GDPR training and compliance services.
