Los Angeles, CA – January 7, 2022- Leech Tishman is proud to announce that firm attorney James K. Paulick recently passed the Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US) Exam, accredited by the International Association of Privacy Professionals, earning him the designation of CIPP/US Certified Professional. Paulick is Counsel with Leech Tishman and a member of the Corporate Group, where he co-leads the Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Group. He is also a member of the Litigation Practice Group, where he co-leads the White Collar Defense Group. Paulick is based in Leech Tishman’s LAX/El Segundo, CA office.
As the global gold standard for privacy professionals, the CIPP/US certification is a key industry benchmark among top employers. Individuals earning this certification must demonstrate a foundational understanding of broad global concepts of privacy and data protection law and practice, including: jurisdictional laws, regulations and enforcement models; essential privacy concepts and principals; legal requirements for handling and transferring data; and more.
While studying for this certification, CIPP/US students receive a comprehensive overview of the U.S. privacy environment, limits on private-sector collection and use of data, government and court access to private-sector information, workplace privacy, and state privacy laws. The CIPP/US certification is backed by American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/International Organization for Standardization (ISO) accreditation.
Paulick counsels small, medium and large businesses in all matters involving Data Privacy and Cybersecurity. Because Paulick has an extensive technical background, he can bridge the common gap between law and technology which is ever-present in the rapidly developing area of Data Protection and Privacy. Paulick advises many different clients on their Data Privacy initiatives including, but not limited to: Drafting Privacy Notices/Policies, Data Processing Agreements, and other vendor due diligence documentation. Additionally, Paulick has experience on the litigation side of Data Privacy including, but not limited to: handling data breach situations as well as defending TCPA class action lawsuits.
Prior to practicing law, Paulick worked for 15 years in Information Technology that included LAN/WAN network design and implementation, cyber security, eDiscovery, and performance troubleshooting of large-scale multitier enterprise applications.
“Passing the CIPP/US exam requires a high level of technical knowledge of the data privacy landscape,” stated Pete A. Fuscaldo, managing partner of Leech Tishman and Chair of the firm’s Corporate Practice Group. “This professional distinction will help Jim become a leader in his field and will be a great asset to our data privacy clients and internal lawyer team.”
