Are you collecting the personal information of EU residents as part of your business activities? How much do you know about privacy laws in the EU and the new EU Regulation on privacy set to come into force in May of this year? Do you know that even if you have no presence in the EU but that you access the personal data of EU individuals you may be on the hook for penalties of up to 4% of your annual revenue? In this seminar I'll introduce the new landscape for privacy in the EU, and I'll share a few tips on how to comply with GDPR.

Q. I have a lawyer, but he practices in another country - what issues are there if he represents me over here?
A: He needs a license to practice in the U.S., even if he's admitted as a lawyer in another country. Most states have adopted a FLC (Foreign Legal Counsel) status of some sort, allowing the foreign lawyer to practice the law of his country of admission in the State in which he is licensed as a FLC. If he isn't looking to practice as a foreign lawyer in the U.S. per se, but just to appear in a court for a client on a matter calling upon his expertise in foreign law, then I agree the pro hac vice is the right admission route.
