Overview

Kamran Salour’s practice centers on privacy and data protection matters. Utilizing his knowledge of U.S. and international privacy laws, including the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the forthcoming California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), Kamran strives to educate clients about a full-range of privacy issues and counsels them on complying with emerging and ever-changing privacy laws. As an experienced litigator, Kamran also defends clients in class action lawsuits stemming from alleged violations of various consumer privacy statutes.

Kamran’s experience extends to cybersecurity issues as well. He assists clients with creating a data breach response plan to fit their business model and in the event of a data breach, works closely with clients from breach response to incident resolution.

Kamran strives to establish a connection with each client to understand their objectives. Although he tackles each matter with a creative, yet pragmatic approach acquired through years of high-stakes litigation, Kamran customizes his strategy to effectively account for his clients' objectives in a particular instance.
