MIchael Best Partner Adrienne Ehrhardt was quoted in Economy Talent's article, "European Employees Will Soon Require Data Privacy" on November 8, 2017.

"Upon learning about new data privacy rules in the European Union, some U.S.-based business leaders deny that the strict laws will apply to them. If a company employs even a single EU citizen, they must comply with the new law on data privacy, no matter their location. Denial is only the first stage in the journey to compliance, or they can face a fine of up to €20 million, said Adrienne Ehrhardt, partner and practice group chair of the privacy and data security group at Michael Best & Friedrich LLP, a national law firm based in Milwaukee."
