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.

The mutually beneficial data partnership may sound like a unicorn, but it is actually quite common. Market forces drive these partnerships for one of three reasons: shared clients, operational teams, and marketing. This contrasts with innovator partnerships, which are driven by sales opportunities, product innovation and channel distribution. Mutually beneficial partnerships tend to between partners… Read More

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

It’s tempting, at this late stage of the year, to think that things are kind of baked in, and that we have to run the clock out until 2021, or to think that it’s necessary to continue on for the last few months as they have been. The former is a perfectly fair sentiment (2020… Read More
