The Privacy Law Specialist is the latest in a series of designations earned by Saikali. In 2017, the IAPP named him a Fellow of Information Privacy, a distinction earned by only two percent of privacy law practitioners.
Saikali represents companies in class action lawsuits arising from data breaches and other data privacy issues. He speaks and writes frequently in his area of law and maintains the Data Security Law Journal blog.
