Mouritz Legal

Attorney at Law

Abraham is a tech savvy and business oriented attorney at law with 20+ years of legal experience. Abraham has been advising clients on data protection well before the GDPR got everyone’s attention. “Privacy to me is way more than just following and implementing data protection rules. It is all about trying to get a grip on the use being made of our personal data. The GDPR provides a nice set of tools to start the journey to reclaim ownership of one’s personal data.”

Abraham started as an attorney at law at law firms in both Amsterdam and Brussels. With over 15 years of in-house legal experience in various U.S. multinationals, Abraham has set up his own law firm of Mouritz Legal in Amsterdam in 2016. The firm is specialized in legal aspects of data protection, cyber security and technology. The firm has clients in the fintech, banking, energy, e-health, connected lighting, capital markets and cyber security industries. Abraham has also advised various major Amsterdam law firms on data protection.

In 2018, Abraham was awarded the “Dutch Independent Legal Award” for excellence in the areas of data protection and technology concepts.

Abraham is a contributing member of the IAPP and holds CIPP/E, CIPP/US and CIPM certifications. He has also been accredited by the IAPP as a Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP). He has been a member of The Netherlands Bar Association since 1996.

Data protection is a passion for Abraham and for that reason he frequently shares data protection articles and concepts on such platforms as LinkedIN. In 2019 Abraham has launched a free website privacy notice checker.
