France > Data privacy and data protection

Baker McKenzie is particularly well versed in cross-border work, both in contentious matters, such as the representation of clients in international disputes involving multiple data protection authorities, and in advisory matters, including advising on multi-jurisdictional compliance surveys and studies for data privacy, e-commerce and other internet projects. The team, which is led by Rémy Bricard and Laurent Szuskin, is also increasingly active in cybercrime cases in which it assists with the conduct of investigations regarding fraud and data breaches and represents clients in related civil and criminal law remedies. Anti-corruption and anti-money laundering measures related to data processing is another area of strength. Led by Yann Padova, the group co-launched a GDPR offering in May 2018 together with specialist communication consultants Havas Legal & Litigation. Additionally, the practice offers the ‘GDPR Survey’, a tool used for tracking compliance processes in organisations created by the firm in collaboration with BearingPoint. Magalie Dansac Le Clerc oversees work relating to the survey tool.
