Ben Brown

Senior Litigation Executive

I started working at Hayes Connor when we were founded in June 2018.

During my time with the firm, I have worked on many large group action and multi-claimant data breach claims and I now principally work hard to achieve compensation for my clients who have suffered from a serious breach of privacy.

Data breach is fast paced and a very exciting area of law. I am committed to delivering the best possible service to each of my clients. I take pride in ensuring that I have a sound knowledge of the emerging case law and the developing approach of the courts to data breach and privacy claims.

I support our clients at every stage of pursuing a data breach claim, answering their questions and providing clear, sensitive support at what can be a very tough time for them.

I helped to create and implement the file management and client care processes which are fundamental to the way we work at Hayes Connor and I draw from this to help train new staff within our firm on this new and evolving area of law. I am also the firm’s Deputy Data Protection Officer.

The most enjoyable part of my job has always been settling a claim. It is very rewarding to know that I have helped someone at what can be a devastating time.

My most memorable day at Hayes Connor has to be the day I settled my first data breach claim as I was able to achieve an excellent result for my client and they gave me some remarkable feedback.


I am studying to qualify as a Chartered CILEX Lawyer to further my career and I am currently an Associate Member of CILEX (ACILEX).

I have also been trained to create and update the Proclaim case management system and processes.  I achieved the Eclipse Technical Level 2 certificate in December 2020.

Personal Interests

When I am not in the office, I enjoy keeping active and running.

I also regularly meet up with friends to visit new restaurants and attend live music events.
