Privacy & Data Security
Consumer data is often named the ‘oil of the 21st century’. Like oil, it is valuable, but if left unrefined it cannot be used. Companies are made by their ability to unlock their customers’ data. Competitors suffer from disregard of their customers’ privacy interests, or inability to keep entrusted data secure.

We do not lose ourselves in notorious legal complexity of comprehensive privacy law, but strive to provide strategic advice that aligns corporate goals with legal compliance.
