Yoann E. A. Le Bihan

Lawyer, IT Engineer, Entrepreneur: the DNA of my career is made of Passion and Sharing with both mentors and mentees. My mission is to help others achieve their goals in their professional lives.

Yoann E. A. Le Bihan Profile Picture

With over 15 years in the IT industry as a freelance consultant and entrepreneur, and as an active member of the State Bar of California, I can bring together knowledge and skills that are too often mutually exclusive: I’m always happy to talk about sophisticated technical topics but also about open source software licensing, copyrighting, business incorporation, or privacy laws.

I've been there too: I know the challenges entrepreneurs must face everyday. And now, I want to share not only my legal expertise but also my personal experience to help you achieve your dreams by launching your own successful business.

Passionate about privacy and an IAPP's Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/E), I also offer consulting services in privacy / data protection (e.g. EU GDPR, ePrivacy, California's CCPA), as well as outsourced DPO services ("DPO-as-a-Service"), mostly to European clients.

A worldwide commuter, I’m mainly based in Luxembourg, a deeply multicultural country in the heart of Europe, with my business headquarters and inspiration in the Silicon Valley (San Francisco Bay Area).

Services

Contract drafting

Do you want support from someone who actually understands your business for drafting contracts with clients or suppliers?

Privacy laws & Compliance

Are you looking for guidance on privacy laws and compliance with your related obligations?

Business immigration

Do you need advice on immigration for your staff, executives, or yourself?

Limited-scope representation only: in-court representation and litigation are not part of the service offered.
