Latham has adopted a set of Binding Corporate Rules (“BCRs”) which have been approved by Data Protection Regulators in Europe. The BCRs allow personal information originating in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to be transferred globally within the firm, and ensure that such personal information is protected to the same standard when processed by any Latham entity or office around the world.
