Data Privacy & Security

Transactional Assistance

Recent advances in technology have enabled businesses of all sizes to amass, share, and analyze data in ways never before possible. As a result, data is now—more than ever—an integral part of your business and essential to your business transactions. We can assist you by:

  • Drafting and negotiating data privacy and security-related items for vendor and customer contracts, including business associate agreements
  • Supporting you when merging with or acquiring another entity by conducting due diligence to make sure that you understand what data you are acquiring, how you can transfer and use that data, and advising on representations and warranties that should be part of the purchase agreement
  • Drafting and negotiating agreements for all types of technology services, such as cloud, software licensing, data licensing, dark web monitoring, or security
  • Preparing agreements necessary for the transfer of data
  • Advising about the use of data in the bankruptcy context

Success Stories

Transitioning Data

Our team assisted a client purchasing a business with U.S. and overseas locations with the handling of employee data transfers and with a transition services agreement through which data would be processed.

Safe Sharing

Our team assisted in the development of several health information exchanges for integrated delivery systems and affiliated providers. We performed an analysis of federal and state privacy laws to determine the use and disclosure restrictions on the sharing of data in health information exchanges and related consent, authorization, notice, and opt-in requirements.

International E-Commerce

Our team guided a client establishing U.S. and European e-commerce websites by preparing the necessary privacy policy, terms of use, and terms of sale.
