Adam J. Fleisher

Adam Fleisher focuses on helping clients with all manner of challenges relating to privacy and data security, from compliance strategies to defending FTC and state attorney general regulatory investigations. He works closely with each of his clients to understand their business—and their business needs—to ensure that risks are identified, compliant practices are in place, and any policies or practices under investigation are vigorously defended as needed. He advises on the drafting and revising of their privacy policies, on privacy due diligence for acquisitions, and on compliance with laws and rules, including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), the CAN-SPAM Act, and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Mr. Fleisher has substantial experience conducting internal investigations to respond to—and defend clients facing—regulatory inquiries relating to consumer protection, in particular with regard to privacy and data security practices.

Mr. Fleisher is also well versed in state money-transmitter licensing laws, and regularly counsels clients on the nature and potential scope of these laws, as well as the state money-transmitter licensing and change-of-control processes. He also leverages his experience regarding consumer protection regulatory inquiries to provide guidance to clients facing regulatory inquiries relating to money-transmission activities.

Mr. Fleisher also supports the Firm’s FCPA and Anti-Corruption Task Force and has co-authored publications addressing recent issues in FCPA enforcement.

Mr. Fleisher received his B.A. from the University of California at Berkeley, his M.A. from the University of Chicago, and his J.D. from the University of Virginia, where he was on the editorial board of the Virginia Law Review. During law school, he also served as a judicial intern for The Honorable Kathryn A. Oberly of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, and was a clerk for The Institute for Justice.

Prior to attending law school, Mr. Fleisher worked for the Council on Foreign Relations, focusing on international economics, and served as an assistant editor at The National Interest.
