Dr Hijmans, a specialist in EU privacy law and data protection, will assist on the EU GDPR implementation project, smart regulation and other work streams.

“Dr Hijmans' presence will provide us with an excellent opportunity to strengthen the synergies between our EU-based privacy and data security practice and CIPL's forward-thinking work on information governance and privacy policy, in particular as it relates to the interpretation of the GDPR,” said Wim Nauwelaerts, leading privacy lawyer and managing partner at Hunton & Williams' Brussels office.
