Areas of Focus
With Oriyan Gitig’s counsel, creative agencies and technology companies understand and uphold privacy and data security obligations. She provides practical solutions clients can use to manage their responsibilities efficiently within a rapidly changing legal and regulatory landscape.
In a privacy environment that often lacks extensive legal and regulatory precedent, Oriyan assists clients in developing best practices based on commonsense risk analyses. She draws on significant data privacy experience and her advertising and media industry insights to guide clients in structuring business services and strategies that reflect the latest privacy and security mandates.
In addition to ensuring clients’ internal policies align with best practices and legal requirements, Oriyan assists those clients in negotiating a variety of agency-client and master service agreements and technology-based initiatives, as well as terms and policies to govern and manage their online and digital properties. Clients appreciate that her professionalism, strong interpersonal skills and commitment to achieving constructive solutions allow them to move forward without sacrificing necessary protections or business goals.
For smaller businesses, Oriyan often provides ongoing legal support as their outside “in-house” counsel. She partners with senior executive and manager-level personnel to provide advice for their privacy and data security strengths, weaknesses and capabilities within their internal companywide controls and infrastructures.
Before she joined Davis+Gilbert, Oriyan spent five years as an associate at Weil Gotshal & Manges. She actively supports firm diversity and pro bono initiatives and mentors new associates.
