Dentons, the world's largest law firm, announces today that Sam Cullari has joined the Firm's Federal Regulatory and Compliance practice. Resident in the Washington, DC, office, Cullari focuses his practice on the intersection of technology, privacy and data security.

In his more than 20 years advising clients as both in-house and outside counsel, Cullari has advised large and small clients regarding legal risk management and mitigation, corporate compliance, transactions and critical incident response. His clients range from application service providers (ASPs) and software companies to financial services companies, manufacturers, retailers and utilities. He is well-versed in a broad range of federal, state and global privacy and data security laws and regulations, including the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and has particular experience in broadband and telecommunications law.

"Sam is a great fit within our data privacy and telecom regulatory team," said Mike Zolandz, chair of Dentons' Federal Regulatory and Compliance practice and managing partner of Dentons' Washington, DC, office. "His broad industry experience coupled with the Firm's robust global platform and ambitious national growth strategy will no doubt yield favorable outcomes for our clients."
