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.

We hear the word “crisis” a lot these days. A phenomenon of our age is that issues are transformed into crises, and many crises are transformed into existential threats. Think about the way we looked at online harms and screen time for children. Just a year or two ago, the rage was the claim that… Read More

Last week, a federal judge dismissed the Federal Trade Commission’s monopoly lawsuit against Facebook, concluding that the agency hadn’t made a sufficiently clear case that the social media giant controlled the market in a monopolistic way. At the same time, Amazon has demanded that FTC Chair Lina Khan recuse herself from any antitrust investigation into… Read More

If there’s one thing that social media loves, it’s talking about social media. It’s no surprise, then, that this week’s internal review at Facebook about whether Donald Trump’s account should be reinstated has chewed up hashtags and trends around the world. If you recall, social networks like Twitter and Facebook banned The Donald in the… Read More

Today is Data Privacy Day, a great time to remember that we live our lives increasingly in visible, recorded ways, and that privacy is something that belongs to all of us and to each of us. Also, it’s a day when privacy professionals post jargon-filled memes that no one understands. “Did you hear the one… Read More

Having a debate about the First Amendment in law school was never something that interested me. For some reason, everyone else was always energized by the idea of debating the contours of permissible expression, or what constituted the prior restraint on the press, but I always preferred structure and process-driven questions about federalism, the Administartive… Read More

The buzz over the dancing* robots hasn’t abated over the last few days, which is an interesting indicator of how many people either loved it or, like me, didn’t. What’s even more interesting is that so many people have taken to writing about what they saw, rather than simply moving on to the next big… Read More
