Kelsi Long Co-Authored Article For Law360 Regarding Federal Data Privacy Bill

Kelsi Long, attorney in the firm’s Birmingham office and member of the Data Privacy & Security Practice, co-authored an article for Law360, published on July 6, 2022, on how businesses would be affected by the Federal Data Privacy Bill. 

In the article, Kelsi discusses the Federal Data Privacy Bill and how the act represents a significant step toward the protection of individual privacy rights at the federal level. Additionally, Kelsi explains how the act places significant obligations on businesses, particularly those that are not currently subject to European privacy law or state comprehensive privacy laws such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the California Privacy Rights Act — or those soon to be in effect in states such as Colorado, Connecticut, Virginia and Utah. 

Kelsi’s practice focuses on transactional matters involving data privacy and security, corporate and securities and energy issues. She routinely advises clients on corporate formation, strategic acquisitions and data breach disclosures, and guides clients through due diligence and contract negotiations. Kelsi works closely with clients' legal and business teams, supporting day-to-day commercial agreements and assisting to navigate the data privacy and security regulatory landscape.
