A senior privacy and regulatory lawyer from Apple has returned to private practice at Mayer Brown on the US West Coast.

Vivek Mohan has joined Mayer Brown as partner in its Northern California cybersecurity and data privacy group, splitting his time between Palo Alto and San Francisco.

Data protection and information security form the mainstay of Mohan’s practice, where he has advised entities in the telecommunications, technology, medical devices and financial services industries.

He is experienced in responding to enquiries and investigations by United States government and regulatory bodies such as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Federal Communications Commission (FCC), as well as counselling on overseas and cross-border compliance such as European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) matters.

Mohan’s early career includes a year as a lawyer and legal fellow at Microsoft and a year in the Office of the Attorney General of New York’s Internet bureau, followed by five years at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government as a fellow and subsequently associate on its Cybersecurity Project. He then joined Sidley Austin for three years.

Most recently Mohan ended a five-year stint in the global privacy law and policy division at Apple, where he was head of information security law and often counselled on issues arising from software, online search services, corporate policy advocacy and government relations.

In a statement, Mayer Brown cybersecurity and data privacy practice leader Raj De lauded Mohan’s “deep knowledge of global privacy laws, data protection requirements, regulations and industry standards, coupled with his strong technology background developed over more than a decade in the private sector and in-house”, further describing him as “a terrific addition” to the team.

Also this month a former FCC associate general counsel left medical devices company Medtronic to join Jenner & Block in Washington, DC.
