Data Privacy & Cybersecurity

Cyber-Counsel for Cybersecurity

Scale LLP has a dedicated Data Privacy and Cybersecurity team helping our clients navigate the complex privacy compliance landscape, protect digital and information assets and control cyber risk.

Our technology focused lawyers have the technical ability, practical experience and industry knowledge necessary to support compliance with the constantly changing scope of privacy and data security regulations, including GDPR, UK, Canada, CCPA/CPRA and US Federal and the growing number of State privacy laws.

As former in-house general and senior counsel, the attorneys on the Scale Data Privacy & Cybersecurity team uniquely bring industry expertise, technical acumen and operational knowledge to provide a pragmatic risk-based approach, actionable insights and implementation leadership to a complex compliance landscape. We seek to work in an embedded relationship with our business partners to add maximum value, but we can as easily assemble a team to drop in to provide immediate guidance to close a deal, perform an audit, manage a breach response or bring our bandwidth to supplement an in-house team.
