Tantleff Discusses Implications of Brexit

06 July 2016 WSJ, POLITICO, Compliance Week News
Partner Aaron Tantleff was quoted in several media outlets discussing the United Kingdom’s planned exit from the European Union, commonly referred to as the Brexit.

Tantleff discussed how the Brexit vote opens the door for a potential for an EU-U.K. Privacy Shield in a Compliance Week article on July 6,2016. He said, “Shouldn’t the U.K. be subject to the same security with respect to compliance with EU data protection laws, including the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)? The UK will now get to experience the same joys as the U.S. in ensuring the protection of the personal data of EU citizens. The basic premise of GDPR and the ‘harmonization’ of data protection laws across the entire European Union just went out the window. I would be lying if I claimed this to be anything but a fundamental shift of the flow of personal information across Europe.”

In a POLITICO article, “Ex-Im Feels the Weight of a Year of Instability,” Tantleff weighed in on how the Brexit may make it easier for the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield to pass. He explained that the Brexit vote “created a sense of urgency” and the deal gives lawmakers and companies a bit of clarity and stability that’s welcome in times of crisis.

Tantleff also spoke with the Wall Street Journal and touched on the uncertainty in the data compliance space. He said, “It would not be a stretch to conclude that were the U.K. to exit from the EU and the GDPR would not directly apply to the U.K., that the EU would find that the U.K. data protection laws are not adequate.”
