For a shortened primer on the risk management issues that apply to U.S. Law Firms, see our March 2018 Cyber Alert titled "GDPR Implications for U.S. Law Firms." In that alert, we explained how the GDPR applies to any type of business that is established in the EU, including U.S. firms with offices in the EU. In addition, the GDPR could apply to law firms without an EU office, if the firm (i) offers goods or services to "natural persons" in the EU or (ii) monitors the behavior of persons in the EU.
