Of Counsel

April M. Strauss, J.D., CIPP/US, CIPP/E, CIPM

April Strauss focuses on complex federal and state consumer class actions, privacy law, California False Claims Act, fraud, advertising and environmental cases. She evaluates the business practices and marketing materials of organizations across a wide range of industries and geographies. She is adept at applying state and federal law to complex areas of science or technology, and frequently negotiates with multiple parties to craft creative compliance programs that would be embraced by company management, and still meet federal and state legal requirements.

Ms. Strauss’ CIPP/US, CIPP/E and CIPM credentials reflect her commitment and strong foundation in U.S. and EU privacy laws and regulations and understanding of the legal requirements for the responsible transfer of sensitive personal data to/from the U.S., the EU and other jurisdictions. They also demonstrate her understanding of privacy program governance and the skills necessary to manage a privacy program across all stages of its operational life cycle.
