The news from Perkins Coie is along the same lines as Janis Kestenbaum has joined the firm from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). She will work in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office as part of the Privacy & Security Practice as a partner.

“Janis is incredibly talented and has deep experience with privacy and security issues that are top of mind to the FTC and industry,” said Jim McCullagh, co-chair of Perkins Coie’s Privacy & Security practice. “She adds significant capacity and capability to our existing privacy practice and our clients will benefit immediately from her first-hand knowledge of FTC policy and enforcement from her experience at the highest levels of the agency as well as her familiarity with state, national and international regulatory regimes.”

Kestenbaum said the following: “I am very excited about joining Perkins Coie’s highly regarded privacy practice. The group has a reputation for finding innovative approaches to consumer protection enforcement actions, such as negotiating the first ever privacy-by-design consent decree with the FTC and its recent representation of a leading mobile app developer before the FTC and state agencies.
