Our multidisciplinary group approaches all the various aspects of data privacy and security matters to be handled on an integrated basis, and implements privacy compliance programs for clients. The group also advises clients of all sizes on the design and adoption of electronic signature programs and computer security programs, including those using digital authorization technology. We collaborate with lawyers in our London office to provide international advice for global companies exchanging data between Europe and the U.S., and between the U.S. and offshore outsourcing companies.
The Privacy and Data Protection practice group includes lawyers from a variety of areas of the law, and from a broad range of backgrounds. We bring together lawyers from the Intellectual Property, Outsourcing, Patent, and Litigation practice groups, among others. Several of the members of the group have technology or engineering backgrounds, and one of our lawyers is a Certified Information System Security Professional. This diverse group combines the skills necessary to meet the privacy and data protection needs of our clients.
