Data Privacy Law and DPO Services

We help clients in a variety of sectors including Financial Services, Digital Advertising, Media, and Healthcare.

Practice Areas

DPO Outsourcing Services

A Data Protection Officer is the lead authority on data security, GDPR compliance, and liaising with government agencies, both in the US and the EU. We provide clients the necessary skills, expertise, and relationships they need by combining the responsiveness of an internal DPO and the perspective of an outside counsel.

GDPR Compliance

Many businesses are not familiar with the requirements of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which applies to any business processing EU citizen data in any way.  The GDPR imposes strict penalties for failure to comply, but we help clients implement “data security by design.”

Federal and State Regulatory Investigations

Regulatory agencies, such as the FTC or the NY Department of Financial Services, oversee privacy and data security in the US.  Our familiarity with these agencies and the law allows us to craft compliance policies and establish best practices that anticipate, rather than merely respond, to agency expectations and demands.

Data Breach Planning and Response

No one wants to be the subject of a data breach, but even the most secure companies can still be at risk.  The most important step is the one you take before the breach occurs — creating an incident response protocol and planning for the worst.  We create breach response and compliance protocols so that our clients always have a plan.

Litigation

There has been an explosive growth in data-related litigation in the last ten years, with no signs of slowing.  Our deep experience in litigation allows us to seamlessly move from trusted advisor to zealous advocate, whether as a plaintiff or in defense. We can manage a case from inception through appeal, and tirelessly advocate for our clients’ rights.

Corporate Governance

Compliance requires more than lip service to protecting information.  Boards have affirmative obligations to engage meaningfully with data regulations and privacy law, or they risk regulatory or shareholder lawsuits.  We advise boards on how to make data security a component of their duties, and how to make their company smarter about data.

It’s a strange phenomenon of modern business that we are absolutely awash in data but, frequently, it seems like the additional information doesn’t lead to insights or meaningful tools. For many enterprises — especially small businesses — market necessity makes it seem like a move to a comprehensive system with data-analytics is the only way… Read More

Three-quarters of the way through 2020, it feels as though January was a decade ago.  How could it not, given the social upheaval, economic turmoil, the fractured and fractious political campaign, and the deadliest, most consequential pandemic in four generations.  We are living in a spin cycle that seems only to accelerate, a dizzying tumult… Read More

To create the maximum value, urgency, and leverage in a data partnership, you must present the data available for sale or partnership in a clear and comprehensive way. Partnerships are based upon the concept that you are offering value for value, whether paid or traded. Friendship might need no reasons, but partnerships require some understanding… Read More

Everybody loves a fad. You can pinpoint someone’s generation better than carbon dating by asking them what their favorite toys and gadgets were as a kid. Tamagotchi and pogs? You were born around 1988, weren’t you? Coleco Electronic Quarterback and Garanimals? Well well, an early X-er. A fad is cultural currency and social lubricant at… Read More

The last week of August is a very strange time, and not only because August is preternaturally long — it sometimes feels like it’s an entire season unto itself. It’s even more confusing because it runs smack into the ever-earlier arrival of the drink which must not be named, but whose presence means it’s time… Read More

Any decent account of the last 30 years will certainly conclude that the high point of culture was 1990’s Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.  History, philosophy, George Carlin, mylar tracksuits (it was the 90s) — it had everything you need.  And, with its long-awaited second sequel coming out this week, I’m sure that if William… Read More
