As a member of both Stoel’s global Privacy and Data Security practice and Litigation groups, Nathan also counsels and advises a wide range of clients on an array of privacy-related matters, including compliance with GDPR, CalCPA, and other federal and state regulatory regimes, assessment and management of third-party risk, and development of internal programs, policies, and procedures.
