Top 5 Privacy Law Areas Lawyers Should Know: A Panel Discussion


I'm excited to announce that I will be moderating a panel discussion on privacy law at the upcoming Marin County Bar Association luncheon on Wednesday, February 24. Privacy law topics will include HIPAA, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), data breaches, an update on recently passed privacy laws from the State Attorney General’s Office, and special privacy considerations for lawyers and legal businesses. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of the most relevant privacy laws & the ability to issue spot privacy concerns that might arise for their clients. Panelists will address privacy best practices for lawyers given their particular ethical duties and the nature of legal business. Details about the luncheon and the panelists are below.
