Munger, Tolles & Olson attorneys Jeffrey L. Bleich and Grant A. Davis-Denny co-authored an article on Law360 titled, “The Latest Cross-Border Privacy Rules in Asia-Pacific” on Sept. 8, 2015.

Mr. Bleich and Mr. Davis-Denny’s article reflects their research to assist corporate counsel for U.S.-based “software-as-service” (SaaS) companies in navigating cross-border data privacy in the Asia-Pacific region. The article focuses on recent developments in data privacy regulation in Australia, Japan, New Zealand Singapore, and Hong Kong that affect companies doing business in those markets, and that may also shape regulation in other markets as well. Mr. Bleich and Mr. Davis-Denny discuss challenges and opportunities relating to regulation of cross-border data transfers in the different countries.

Based in San Francisco, Mr. Bleich focuses on international disputes and counseling, with special emphasis on privacy and data security in the Asia-Pacific region. He previously served as U.S. Ambassador to Australia and Special Counsel to President Obama.

Based in the firm’s Los Angeles office, Mr. Davis-Denny’s practice emphasizes counseling companies on data security and privacy law compliance issues and representing clients in data breach class action litigation.
