Facebook Data Case: EU's Top Court Quashes US-EU 'Privacy Shield'

July 16, 2020, Law.com

Lisa Peets is quoted in Law.com regarding the European Court of Justice’s judgment in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. Ms. Peets says that the judgment means that the 5,000 or so U.S. companies signed up to the Privacy Shield will have to find an interim solution until EU and U.S. officials have worked out a new data protection deal. “The invalidation of the Privacy Shield will keep data protection lawyers busy as clients consider the impact of the judgment and the need for alternate transfer mechanisms,” she adds.

She says that the court’s finding that the standard contract clauses are legally sound would nonetheless be welcomed by many businesses. “This will be a huge relief to companies across Europe.”
