You can’t control the wind, but you can always adjust your sails – Jimmy Dean

Jason Sarfati is a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the largest and most comprehensive global information privacy community.  Jason holds the CIPP/US certification (Certified Information Privacy Professional / US concentration), which means that he is particularly well versed in the data privacy laws that govern the private sector in the United States.  His practice focuses on advising clients how to comply with federal and state privacy laws governing the collection, use, retention, and disclosure of private or otherwise sensitive information. Jason also has broad experience in offering his clients transactional support in negotiating technology transactions with both private and public entities. 

Jason is a firm believer that businesses should view data privacy and cybersecurity as an opportunity, not a costly headache.  By negotiating contracts that ensure the rapid and secure transfer of information, Jason will help your business to reach the next level of performance.  If you come to Jason seeking legal advice for a compliance, transactional, or litigation matter, you’re likely to walk away with a business growth strategy that you can present to your stakeholders.  This approach makes Jason the ideal partner for any business.

Before joining Joseph Greenwald & Laake, Jason worked in the General Counsel’s Office of Towers Watson (today Willis Towers Watson), an American global professional services firm specializing in risk management and human resource consulting.  During his time at Willis Towers Watson, Jason specialized in negotiating complex commercial transactions that contained substantial data privacy provisions.  Jason also led Willis Towers Watson’s Data Protection Authority registration efforts, thus providing him with a significant background in data privacy compliance matters throughout the United States and around the world.
