We have been focused on the privacy issues unique to technology companies since the 1990s. We understand the significance of data as a core asset in innovative technology businesses and the risks it brings to the table. We have decades of experience, hundreds of completed privacy projects and proven success in advising thousands of leading technology companies on data privacy issues.
Long on Experience
We support clients in their efforts to comply with the ever-expanding universe of privacy and data security regulations. Our Privacy & Data Security group is one of the largest of any firm regularly working with technology companies, and we have more CIPPs (Certified Information Privacy Professionals) than any other comparable firm, including practitioners certified for both the U.S. and the E.U. The team takes a practical, risk-based approach to preparing clients for data privacy compliance, including with GDPR, CCPA and UK privacy laws.
Comprehensive and Targeted Counsel
We help craft policies and practices to address data compliance risks and obligations and assure that proper privacy and security protections are built into commercial relationships. We’ve created more privacy policies and negotiated more privacy and security-related contractual provisions for emerging companies than any other firm.
Broad Regulatory Experience
Our counsel extends across U.S., state and international privacy and related regulatory regimes. Our Data Privacy Team is directly involved in and committed to every deal the firm handles and works seamlessly with your in-house team and other advisors to provide practical solutions. We combine technical know-how with real world experience to ensure our advice is tailored to your business.
