Privacy Services

Data privacy regulation is an evolving area of law both in the United States and internationally. It is also a very complex legal and regulatory landscape, both at the federal and state level in the U.S. For companies with international operations, it is often a compliance nightmare, having to build compliance programs that comply not only with U.S. laws and regulations, but also a myriad of international laws, such as the European General Data Protection Regulation and the national and regional derogations within the EU, many of which conflict with one another.
