Filippo A. Raso helps clients traverse the evolving privacy, security, and data protection landscape so they can keep delivering innovative products. He excels in breaking down complex, cross-cutting problems and in providing concise, clear, and thoughtful advice.

Filippo counsels companies on a broad range of issues. Recently, these have included the use and disclosure of health information, consumer profiling, data breach response, security program development, national security laws, M&A-related privacy concerns, and the newly enacted California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The clients he works with are as diverse as the issues he addresses, encompassing retailers, software companies, advertising networks, pharmaceutical companies, and nonprofits among others.

Filippo has long been drawn to data-driven technologies and their disruptive potential. Working for a virtual data room provider prior to law school, he saw firsthand how software cuts costs and improves efficiencies for companies across all sectors. During law school, he came to appreciate the compliance challenges facing companies of all sizes by advising clients of the Harvard Law Entrepreneurship Project and through his internship with the government of Canada's Privacy and Data Protection Directorate.

While in law school, Filippo served as the executive editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Technology Digest, launching its commentary program. He worked extensively with Harvard University Berkman Klein Center's Cyberlaw Clinic. During his advanced clinical placement, Filippo, alongside Hannah Hilligoss and Vivek Krishnamurthy, published Artificial Intelligence & Human Rights, a groundbreaking report on the intersection of artificial intelligence and international human rights.
