David Merck delivers practical, forward-thinking solutions to complex privacy and cybersecurity compliance challenges and business risks.

David regularly advises clients on a broad range of critical data-related issues, including responses to cybersecurity incidents, government investigations, as well as obligations arising under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

David's practice focuses on helping clients maximize the value of their data while mitigating privacy and cybersecurity risks. He has conducted comprehensive assessments of privacy policies, internal compliance programs, and cross-border data transfer mechanisms.

In addition to his privacy and cybersecurity work, David maintains an active pro bono practice. He recently worked on a long-standing housing discrimination case under the Fair Housing Act (FHA) and helped an LGBT client from Jamaica obtain asylum in the United States.

While in law school, David was the executive operations editor of The Tax Lawyer and served as a law fellow for Georgetown University Law Center's Legal Research and Writing program.
