As this article in Above the Law indicates, privacy law is a growing field. We are already seeing an increase in demand for lawyers with any sort of data privacy and/or cybersecurity experience, and we expect this trend to continue in the foreseeable future. Just in Austin alone, we have two openings for attorneys with 1-7 years of data privacy or cybersecurity expertise. Depending on the attorneys' backgrounds, the firm might be willing to train and let them learn this area of the law on-the-job. Please send your resume to and reference "Data Privacy Openings" for more details. These opportunities are with a boutique firm with a long and successful track record and where partnership is a realistic and viable goal.
