Tricia Dunlap, CIPP/US


Dunlap Law PLC


At age 40 with two teenagers at home, Tricia leapt from teaching to law school and began her legal career working on corporate sustainability initiatives and climate change with Christensen Global Strategies, a small but mighty consulting firm. After joining McGuireWoods in 2012, Tricia served on the Advisory Board and the Consumption Industry Working Group of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board ( the "SASB") which was founded in 2012 to develop a framework of evidence-based, material, and industry-specific sustainability performance standards.

From 2014-16, Tricia served SASB on a small team of subject matter experts that created the two credentialing exams the SASB offers to those who want to advise business leaders on disclosures using the SASB’s frameworks. Tricia holds the SASB's Fundamentals of Sustainability Accounting (FSA) credential because she helped write the tests.

In 2015 she started Dunlap Law to satisfy her desire for greater freedom and her nerdy love for solving gnarly problems. Tricia provides counsel to a wide variety of clients on business law, IP, and data privacy and cybersecurity. Her work with SASB convinced her that properly managing risks related to data privacy and security is and will remain a ubiquitous sustainability issue for businesses and governments, therefore Tricia holds the Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US) credential from the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
