Lauren Wallace ’11
Principal, Wallace Tech Law LLC
I work with companies that buy and sell cutting-edge technology for corporate and consumer transactions, including Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning tools. When I started working in technology law, after graduating as a second-career lawyer in 2011, clients were all about extracting as much personal information from their users as possible, without much regard for data security and privacy. Now, companies realize that respect and protection for personal information is a selling point, and they want to feel confident that they meet or exceed local and global privacy requirements. As a citizen, consumer, parent, and lawyer, I see privacy as a fundamental human right. I’m grateful to be able to combine my background as a technology businessperson with my training as a lawyer, so that I can help young companies design for privacy, and help mature companies negotiate deals that support sincere and achievable privacy practices and policies.
