Goodwin has announced the addition of former Department of Homeland Security Chief Privacy Officer Karen Neuman to its Privacy & Security practice in its Washington office. “Companies of all sizes and across all industries continue to face significant challenges related to data privacy and security, leading them to seek increasingly sophisticated counsel,” said Goodwin Chairman David Hashmall. “Karen brings to Goodwin’s clients deep expertise on issues related to global data protection law, cybersecurity, and information governance.” Among Neuman’s projects as CPO with DHS, she served on the U.S. delegation that negotiated the EU−U.S. Privacy Shield. “Goodwin’s clients will benefit from Karen’s unmatched experience in the privacy world – as both a private practitioner and a senior government official – and from her practical understanding of the European Union’s privacy frameworks,” said co-Chair of Goodwin’s Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice Brenda Sharton. “She is a great addition to Goodwin’s long-standing practice and we are delighted she’s chosen to join the firm.”
Mark Schreiber, CIPP/US, has joined McDermott Will & Emery as the Boston office’s partner and leader of its Global Privacy and Cybersecurity practice. Schreiber will focus on the firm’s trans-border data protection work, with issues like the EU−U.S. Privacy Shield. “Privacy and cybersecurity issues are of the utmost importance to our clients, and we are delighted to welcome Mark as one of the nation’s leading authorities in the data protection arena,” said McDermott Global Leader of Regulatory Practice Raymond Jacobsen. “Mark’s regulatory experience will complement our existing Global Privacy and Cybersecurity practice by adding to the depth and breadth of the services we provide when addressing the complex privacy challenges faced by companies across the various global industries we serve.”
