California drives the law of privacy in the United States and the proliferation of privacy-related legislation in the state makes it an increasingly difficult job for companies and their counsel to stay on top of and implement comprehensive compliance.

Lothar Determann has written the first comprehensive commentary on California privacy law, including coverage of Federal privacy laws and questions of preemption. This helpful resource covers more than one hundred statutes with summaries and at-a-glance guidance based on statutes and cases. 

“This handbook is essential for any company doing business in California,” says Tricia Timm, Founder and CEO of GCAssist. “From simple-to-read summaries on the law to tips on setting up a data privacy compliance program, Lothar Determann’s “California Privacy Law” has everything you need to know as in-house counsel to comply with the privacy laws in California. A must-have reference book for any legal department.”

Charles Dick, General Counsel of the San Diego Bar Association notes, “Determann’s new guide to privacy law in California is a most useful tool that covers an important topic in a comprehensive way. It is written in understandable language, can be digested without prior knowledge of the subject, and includes practical suggestions for selecting sensible privacy policies that are consistent with the circumstances of individual businesses. This is a book to have within an arm’s reach of anybody in California who is responsible for administering  privacy policies.”

At 500+ pages the book not only provides commentary but drafting tips based on specific legal requirements, in-depth discussion of the enforcement landscape, as well as checklists and risk mitigation suggestions.
