Wiggin and Dana Partner John Kennedy has been named an advisor for Restatement Third, Information Privacy Principles, a new project for the American Law Institute.

The Restatement Third, Information Privacy Principles project aims to bring increased order and consistency to American information privacy law by restating and enhancing a set of Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs), which will provide guidance to courts, legislatures and policy makers about the various responsibilities that entities should have when collecting and using personal data.

A leading information technology lawyer, John was selected for this project based on his background in privacy law. John has over 25 years of legal experience, focusing on transactions and counseling in information technology, data privacy and security, intellectual property and e-commerce.

John is one of thirty-six advisors selected for this project. He will join the other advisors for their first meeting on September 19, 2013 in Washington D.C.
