Data protection, E-commerce & IT Legal Specialist


Isabelle Wárlám

I am Wárlám Legal.

There is never a dull day when advising about privacy and related subjects. The field provides interesting challenges in this data driven era full of technological and legal developments. I regularly draft statements and terms for apps, websites and IoT devices, while advising on their set-up and providing relating contracts. I also guide preparations for the EU General Data Protection Regulation. My clients are diverse, from multinational to start-up and sometimes a private person. Additionally, I assist several law firms with my expertise, staying connected with the branch in which my career kicked off in 2009.

    Data Protection, E-commerce & IT Legal Specialist

I enjoy giving advice and drafting legal documents that everyone can understand and work with. The goal is to make legal matters meet business interests and end-user expectations. For optimal results, I listen to and learn from others, while never ceasing to think autonomously.
