Project Highlights

  • The client was looking for a data privacy secondee to handle overflow work on a part-time basis

  • A Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP) was preferred

  • Our attorney had 15 years of experience as well as CIPP and CIPM certifications

Estimated Client Savings:  60% vs. large law firm rates

The Scenario:

A large mutual fund company engaged Lumen Legal to identify a high-level attorney with both U.S. and international privacy experience to handle overflow work and special projects related to data privacy issues. The attorney needed to be able to work with senior clients on important contracts and be certified by the International Association of Privacy Professionals as a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP).  The work could be done on a remote basis, which allowed for a talented, nationwide candidate pool.

Our Solution:

  • Lumen deployed an experienced data privacy attorney who held licenses in many U.S. jurisdictions and held CIPP and Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) certifications.

  • With more than 15 years of experience in a variety of roles including General Counsel, Contracts Administrator and Chief Privacy Officer, our attorney brought the right legal background and business sophistication to the role.

  • Our attorney worked remotely on a part-time basis.


Our client was very pleased with the depth and breadth of our secondee’s privacy experience. He continues to work part-time for the client. The client saves 60% over large law firm rates.
