Venable recently announced that Shannon Yavorsky has joined the firm's national Privacy and Data Security and Intellectual Property practices as a partner in San Francisco. Yavorsky counsels clients on a broad range of U.S. and European data privacy issues, including cross-border data transfer, data breaches, and global privacy compliance. She has significant experience with European Commission standard contractual clauses, data privacy policies, website terms and data processing agreements, and advising clients on self-certifying to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. Her practice also places a heavy emphasis on contentious and non-contentious intellectual property and technology transactions work.
"I will be counseling a broad range of EU and U.S. clients on data privacy issues. I'll be advising in relation to, specifically, cross-border data transfer," Yavorsky told Law360 in a March 8, 2017, interview when asked about her focus at Venable. "I'm also an English solicitor. I'll be advising on English and European intellectual property and data protection issues."
Yavorsky's move was also noted in the San Francisco Business Times on March 8 and in the Daily Journal on March 15.
