Those of you familiar with the area of data privacy already know that the International Association of Privacy Professionals’ (“IAPP”) CIPP/US certification is the global gold standard for privacy professionals and a key industry benchmark.  The CIPP/US designation demonstrates familiarity with U.S. privacy laws and regulations.  Well, CPW is proud to announce that one of our extremely talented litigators Zarish Baig has joined the group of CIPP/US certified attorneys, which already included CPW’s privacy pros Elliot Golding, Petrina McDaniel and Kristin Bryan.  As you may know, here at CPW we have assembled one of the most experienced and dedicated consumer privacy teams on the planet—powerful class action litigators working together with privacy compliance professionals who have real-world experience operationalizing cutting-edge guidance.  Adding this important certification to our deep bench of litigators further enhances our team’s capabilities.

Do you know Zarish?  She is a frequent contributor to CPW blogging on key developments in data privacy litigation (in case you missed it, be sure to check out some of her work analyzing the CCPA and other matters here, here and here).  Zarish is a truly international attorney, licensed to practice in Canada and the United States.  She has counselled clients all over the world in multifaceted roles.  Her current practice ranges from advising clients on consumer privacy issues, product design and litigation, and ensuring clients stay compliant with applicable laws and regulations.  In addition to representing clients in both state and federal courts, and internal and government investigations, Zarish is also experienced in providing practical and business-oriented advice.

Well done Zarish!  We’re proud to have you on our team.
