Sidley Austin

Managing Associate, Privacy and Cybersecurity

As an associate at Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, Mitchell partners with clients to implement privacy and cybersecurity practices, protocols, and compliance strategies, and to structure agreements that protect data assets. Leveraging a background in analytics and insights gained from a Westin Fellowship with the IAPP, he helps companies adapt and thrive in an ever-changing privacy and data security landscape.

Prior to joining the firm, Mitchell completed a one-year Westin Research Fellowship with the IAPP. In this role, Mitchell conducted research and published thought leadership on the practical implications of changes in the data privacy field. He built an in-depth knowledge of state-level privacy law developments and created resources for privacy professionals on topics such as the California Consumer Privacy Act.

Mitchell’s interest in privacy is rooted in his love for data. He developed an interest in statistics while he was an undergraduate student at the University of Minnesota, where he became fascinated by the power of data to persuade and wary of its ability to deceive. His interest in data and statistics led him to pursue and complete a Master of Science in Business Analytics — also from the University of Minnesota — to better understand and deploy cutting edge methods for data analysis. Prior to his legal career, Mitchell worked as a supply chain professional and a technology consultant.

A native Minnesotan, Mitchell embraces winter and enjoys the cold and snow. He is also a technology enthusiast and tries to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and product releases. Outside of work, Mitchell balances out his wife’s culinary expertise with a flair for dish washing. He also attempts to keep his coding chops sharp by organizing a volunteer analytics group.
