János Kopasz, CIPP/E




Dr. János Kopasz is a senior member of Taylor Wessing’s IP/IT practise group in Hungary. As a qualified lawyer János has gained in-depth knowledge ensuring legal compliance of businesses from start-ups to large MNEs during their entire lifecycle, including the compliance challenges during the development, distribution and marketing of new products and services. Ensuring legal compliance faces new challenges in our data-driven era when most commercial transactions and social interaction moved to the digital space. These challenges led János to his specialisation in data protection & cyber.

János acquired substantial experience and firm understanding of privacy practices through his participation in countless data / tech / e-commerce related projects – including full data protection audits of MNEs, advising on complex privacy issues involving innovative information technologies and international elements. This commitment led him to his promotion to Senior Associate following his admission to the Hungarian Bar Association in 2019.

Driven by his special interest in this field, he obtained the Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP) title by completing the CIPP/E exam of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) and successfully maintaining his certification within the Continuing Education Program.

Further to his membership in IAPP, János is also an active participant of local privacy professional communities. János is committed to promoting the legal implications of the latest technology solutions, and consciousness in data protection via his press articles, radio interviews, and privacy training activities performed actively during the last years.
