Privacy & Data Protection

Our Privacy & Data Protection team has implemented global and regional data protection compliance programs for Fortune 500 companies in a broad range of industries. We advise corporations on international data transfer requirements under European, Russian, Asian and US laws.

Our close relationships with public regulators and data protection authorities (“DPAs”) also enables us to monitor ongoing privacy developments on behalf of our clients. We have assisted clients who have been the subject of DPA investigations and have successfully managed those investigations.

As a result of our work to date, we have developed a body of model-form policy materials and contract documents addressing different aspects of an organisation’s privacy obligations. Through our international projects, we have developed a network of local lawyers around the world with specific expertise in their national privacy and data protection arrangements.
