EOE-Protected Veterans/Disability

Job Description :

DLA Piper is seeking a Counsel or Senior Associate who specializes in data privacy and cyber security matters to join its Privacy, Data Protection and Security group team. Candidates should be admitted to the California bar with a preference to be resident in our Palo Alto, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sacramento or San Diego offices; however, we will consider candidates for our offices in Washington, DC, Seattle, Northern Virginia, New York, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Miami, Austin or Philadelphia offices. The ideal candidate will have 6+ years of law firm experience in counseling clients on privacy compliance matters and have practical experience advising clients in a wide range of data privacy laws, including US federal and state privacy and data security laws and regulations (the new California Privacy Act, CAN-SPAM, TCPA, COPPA, ECPA, FERPA, FCRA, GLBA and breach notification laws, among others), as well as the GDPR and other international privacy laws.

This is an excellent opportunity to be an important part of a highly-rated and rapidly growing practice on a truly global platform with strong privacy colleagues around the world.

We are looking for a candidate who is highly motivated, capable of working independently and directly with clients and running smaller and mid-sized matters with minimal supervision, and who is interested in working with both large companies and start-ups. We prefer candidates with big law firm experience, immediately transferable skills and strong academic backgrounds from nationally recognized schools.
