Joe Vladeck helps companies maximize the value of their data while mitigating data privacy and cybersecurity risks. Joe regularly works with global clients to negotiate and structure mergers and acquisitions, strategic partnerships, and commercial agreements that involve complex data risks and detailed compliance obligations.

From early-stage startups to leading global enterprises, Joe engages with clients on big data initiatives, health privacy compliance, privacy and cybersecurity risk assessments, and cross-border data transfers. Joe also helps clients solve potential consumer protection or regulatory issues, including under Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and other federal and state consumer protection, privacy, and data security laws.

In addition to his privacy and cybersecurity work, Joe maintains an active pro bono practice. He regularly advises nonprofits on transactional, privacy, and regulatory matters.
