EU Data Protection and Privacy

Guiding U.S. companies in European privacy law compliance.

Data protection and privacy regulation in Europe is a continually evolving area of law, creating numerous compliance challenges for data controllers and processors around the world. U.S. companies are no exception. Businesses must discern how legislation such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and ePrivacy Directive apply to their operations and, if so, how to comply with them. Our team of privacy attorneys understands these laws and helps clients determine how their company’s operations are impacted and what they need to do to ensure compliance. 

Our counsel includes:

  • Guidance on if and how GDPR applies to a business
  • Online privacy policies and cookie disclosures
  • Implementing cookie consent banners
  • Drafting and negotiating data processing agreements
  • Data inventories and maps
  • Data breach preparation and response
  • Cross-border data transfer compliance issues
  • Privacy and data security due diligence

An Introduction to the EU AI Act

There is very little HB attorneys can’t do for us. On the extraordinarily rare occasion that HB attorneys do not feel they have the precise skills we need on a given matter, they are very candid and honest in saying so. This level of integrity and genuine care for our success is one of the key reasons we continue to return to HB.
