Peter Blenkinsop advises clients on regulatory compliance, focusing on two distinct but overlapping areas: (i) privacy, cybersecurity, data ethics & strategy, and (ii) medical research.
Privacy, Cybersecurity, Data Ethics & Strategy
Peter leads the firm’s Privacy, Cybersecurity, Data Ethics & Strategy Team. He advises organizations on compliance with laws in the US and abroad that govern collection and use of personally identifiable information (PII) and information derived from PII. This includes working with clients to identify privacy risks, build data protection programs, and manage data governance.
In his over 20 years of counseling clients on data protection and data governance, Peter has had the opportunity to work with organizations of all sizes and across many sectors, from small startups to some of the world’s largest corporations. Peter also helps manage two leading industry associations focused on privacy and the responsible use of data – the International Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Privacy Consortium and the Consumer Goods Privacy+ Consortium (CGPC).
Peter has been extensively involved in shaping privacy and data protection laws over the last 20 years, authoring dozens of responses to public consultations on new legislative and regulatory privacy proposals at the US federal and state levels, as well as in Europe and around the globe.
