Colton Driver, an associate for Nelson Mullins and Encompass, has become the first attorney in the Firm to earn his Certified Information Privacy Professional/Europe certification (CIPP/E), which demonstrates understanding of a principles-based framework and knowledge base in information privacy within the European context, including critical topics like the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The certification is difficult to attain and highly valued in Europe, as well as in the United States, particularly as more state governments consider data privacy legislation modeled after the EU’s GDPR.
Driver focuses his practice on electronic discovery issues and data privacy implementation and compliance. He has helped counsel clients on the contours of the GDPR since its inception in order to help develop and implement effective data collection, processing, and transfer strategies for U.S.-based litigation.
