Julian Flamant works with clients to develop effective, risk-based privacy and data protection compliance strategies. His practice is focused on helping clients anticipate and resolve the challenges of providing data-based services on multiple continents.
Julian regularly assists large multinational companies with implementing local projects in compliance with applicable privacy rules, including Europe's GDPR; the FTC Act, COPPA, and state privacy laws (such as the CCPA/CPRA) in the U.S.; and Brazil’s LGPD and Canada's PIPEDA.
Julian also advises on cybersecurity matters, including data breach response and remediation, enterprise-wide assessments of security practices, and compliance with U.S.-state and international security laws and regulations.
Through two secondments with global companies, Julian has further honed his practical, business-minded approach to counseling and compliance.

While earning his master of laws in international relations, Julian prepared a dissertation exploring harmonization of data protection regulatory approaches between the United States and the European Union and later worked on the GDPR's interservice consultation as a European Commission trainee.
