Zetoony, co-chair of global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP’s U.S. Data, Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice, has been named by Lexology as the top “Legal Influencer” in the field of U.S. Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) – an area which includes compliance with United States data privacy and security laws. This is Zetoony’s eighth time being recognized by the publication, which selected him from a pool of attorneys from more than 900 law firms.
Lexology is one of the most comprehensive sources of international legal updates, analysis and insights, according to its website. The publication identifies top leaders in their field for their insightful legal analysis on a quarterly basis. The leaders are determined by audience responses to their articles, including how many readers view them as well as user determined rankings.
Zetoony focuses his practice on helping businesses navigate data privacy and cyber security laws from a practical standpoint, helping hundreds of companies establish and maintain ongoing privacy and security programs. He has defended corporate privacy and security practices in investigations initiated by the Federal Trade Commission, and other data privacy and security regulatory agencies around the world, as well as in class action litigation.
In addition, Zetoony is the author of the American Bar Association’s primary publication on the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the American Bar Association’s upcoming publication on the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA).
