Privacy Shield Certifications: Things You Need to Know
To benefit from the European Commission’s adequacy determination, U.S. based companies need to join the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and are obliged to self-certify to the Department of Commerce and to publicly commit their compliance with the Framework’s requirements. Companies should strongly consider obtaining the certification since the European privacy laws are substantially stricter than those in the U.S.
A Privacy Shield certification is critical in sidestepping investigations and fines.

About Wade Clark Mulcahy
Founded in 1994, WCM has grown through word of mouth and client referrals into a regional defense focused law firm with offices in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
WCM is first and foremost a firm of trial lawyers. Our attorneys recognize that, at the end of the day, a case may need to be tried to a judge or jury. Therefore, unlike many law firms, we never lose sight of the fact that we need to be able to convincingly tell our client’s story. We take this responsibility seriously and it is why so many of our senior attorneys are former prosecutors or government counsel. More importantly, our narrative focus sharpens our ability to hone in on the key issues in any case and not get lost in the details. This focus not only makes for better lawyering, but it also increases the efficiency of our handling of our clients’ cases.
WCM is further able to harness our focus on telling the clients’ story into sound, practical advice to our clients when we are asked to provide counsel. We are forever cognizant that many strategies and tactics that look good on paper cannot stand up to the reality of convincing a judge or jury. Our attorneys pride themselves on implementing strategies and tactics that will work, not that simply sound good in the abstract.
WCM is committed to maintaining our reputation for excellence within our core areas of competency – insurance law, professional liability and property and casualty. We stand ready at all times to focus our energies on any problem – large or small – and to resolve it cleanly, quickly and efficiently.
