Position

Winston's sweet spot is where regulation hits the Internet: How national privacy laws, copyright, media and telecom regulations apply to borderless Internet-based services.  Winston, partner in our Paris office, has become a trusted advisor of major Internet, telecom and media companies, and of government institutions: in 2014 he was appointed to the French National Assembly's Commission on Digital Rights, and was asked to contribute to the French Conseil d'Etat's 2014 report on fundamental rights in the digital age. Winston has completed projects for the European Commission, the French telecom regulatory authority (ARCEP) and data protection authority (CNIL) on forward-looking regulatory issues. After authoring a 2011 book on net neutrality with a member of France's telecommunications regulatory authority, Winston has become one of the country's leading experts on net neutrality.
