General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Select Options


The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on May 25, 2018. With extraterritorial reach and more formal obligations for companies that collect, analyze, store and delete personal data, the GDPR has changed the data privacy landscape. Non-compliance risks steep fines based on annual revenue and has far reaching effects for corporations who handle the personal data of their customers or third parties. GDPR's impact goes far beyond the EU and has particular significance for all multinational organizations.

Baker Botts lawyers in Europe, the UK and the United States work closely to monitor the international data privacy landscape and especially how the GDPR is evolving in its application across a range of disciplines and technologies.
