Lyn has broad and deep international business and legal experience. This includes 10 years with an international law firm and more than three years in-house with GE Capital in Australia before she moved to Singapore in 2000. She spent nine years as regional general counsel for Visa Asia Pacific, based in Singapore, and then worked in various other corporate and consultancy roles before establishing Lyn Boxall LLC in March 2015.
She works closely with clients and prides herself on providing high quality, high value, user friendly advice. Lyn sees the law as an activator and enabler of business. She enjoys working closely with clients and helping their businesses succeed, whether 'their business' is a sector of a multinational corporation or an entrepreneurial startup with exciting ambitions or an established local business realising the opportunities of the digital age.
Lyn doesn't like to advise clients on what cannot be done, but to find ways to help them move forward and to work on what can be done to help their business succeed in an efficient and ethical manner.
She first started working with data protection/privacy and information security more than 20 years ago when she was working in-house. She had to find solutions to a myriad of operational challenges and support achievement of business performance targets at the same time. She became, and remains, a vocal advocate of using data protection/privacy policies and practices, including information security policies and practices, to support business excellence and engender stakeholder trust.
