On February 4, Alston & Bird’s Los Angeles office hosted a presentation on EU data laws and US data laws with two leading experts from Olswang LLP, Ross McKean and Andreas Splittgerber. Alston’s Dominique Shelton moderated while McKean and Splittgerber shared their views on the profound changes occurring in EU data protection laws. It was a lively discussion that included the ramifications of the Google Spain decision and looked ahead to the upcoming EU Data Protection Regulation. The discussion provided a valuable opportunity to consider how U.S. companies can comply with the relevant EU data laws and avoid the heavy fines that are on the horizon in the proposed regulation.
