OVERVIEW

Laura Mujenda counsels clients on a broad range of privacy and data security matters. Her practice encompasses four facets: (1) counseling clients on product launches, Apple or Google Play App store requirements, privacy policies, etc.; (2) assisting clients with topline compliance with GDPR, CCPA and other U.S. and international privacy laws; (3) counseling clients on data breach response and disclosure obligations, as well as helping clients assess data security risks and implement reasonable security measures required by law; and (4) assisting clients with government demands for communications data in criminal investigations and/or private requests for such data in civil cases. In her day-to-day, Laura has reviewed data flows, prepared data inventories, helped negotiate and prepare data protection agreements and prepared internal and external consumer-facing policies, terms and procedures.

In her commercial litigation practice, Laura gained experience in discovery and pretrial motion practice, and helped clients with disputes involving fraud, misrepresentation, breach of contract, tortious interference with a contract, as well as trademark, trade dress and copyright infringement. She has also researched issues related to dispute resolution mechanisms such as mediation and arbitration, and helped with investigations related to retaliation, sexual harassment, and gender or pregnancy-based discrimination.

Laura’s pro bono practice focuses on representing immigrants in removal proceedings who seek lawful admission into the United States. In that regard, Laura recently secured release on bond and a grant of Deferral of Removal under the Convention Against Torture for a native and citizen of Guatemala.
