Mark Webber, CIPP/E
Mark Webber is Fieldfisher's US Managing Partner, a European lawyer and English solicitor. Mark is one of a few leading EU privacy and technology specialists based full time in Silicon Valley. His daily workload focusses on data regulation and EU technology transactions (particularly those with a disruptive component).
For 20 years Mark has been advising clients selling and buying technology and on the regulations that may impact these sales and solutions. He has particular expertise where cloud, digital and online technologies converge and leverage data in order to deliver value. Mark spends a lot of time helping US businesses understand and grow in European markets. He negotiates deals, helps explain regulations and works to explain compliance in order to reduce friction in the contracting process.
With EU/US personal data exchanges so fundamental to US technology offerings, a large proportion of his time is spent assisting with large global data transfer projects, GDPR "readiness", internal governance and accountability structures and on data protection risk management. He also knows his way around Europe's consumer and internet laws.
Mark is on the IAPP Training Faculty and a regular West Coast and IAPP event trainer for the CIPP(E). He co-authored the UK chapter of Global Security and Privacy Law published by Wolters Kluwer.
Mark practices in California as a Registered Foreign Legal Consultant with the CalBar.
