Michael is a Partner in our Commercial Department. With over 20 years’ experience, he is a regulatory specialist with a focus on content and communications regulation.
Technology companies are subject to an increasingly complex legal and regulatory landscape in the EU, particularly as it relates to harmful and illegal online content. Michael is centrally involved in assisting some of the world’s largest technology companies navigate these laws, from understanding whether and how they apply to designing effective and efficient compliance measures with minimal impact on business.
Michael advises clients on all aspects of the EU’s Digital Services Act as well as on related laws such as the AVMS Directive, Terrorist Content Online Regulation, CSAM Regulation Proposal and Ireland’s Online Safety and Media Regulation Act.
Michael also has intimate knowledge of the EU electronic communications regulatory framework, including its complex ePrivacy rules, which now apply to a wide range of technology companies.
