Data Privacy

Nielsen Merksamer’s attorneys have unmatched experience advising on privacy issues across a wide range of industries and contexts, including counseling clients on compliance with a patchwork of privacy laws and regulations; developing and reviewing website policies, including privacy policies and other notices and procedures for handling consumer data requests; advising on related data collection, use, and disclosure issues; and navigating responses to breaches.

Our team routinely assists clients on compliance and best practices related to the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA), the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) (the first general U.S. privacy law), and the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) (passed by California voters via Proposition 24 in November 2020). From former legislative attorneys who drafted California’s privacy laws to government affairs professionals who have the pulse of Sacramento, our experienced attorneys are in a unique position to closely track developments in this emerging and rapidly changing area of the law, including by working closely with the newly established California Privacy Protection Agency.
