Mitzi Hill is the founder of Taylor English’s Data Security & Privacy practice. She works with business owners and executives to ensure that they are ready to compete in a global supply chain that requires attention to privacy and security through use of technology. Her experience includes fifteen years in-house at Turner Broadcasting, where she oversaw multiple regulatory compliance programs, international content licensing, and legal clearance of new technology systems. Prior to her time in-house, Ms. Hill was with a large international law firm, where she focused on technology and media issues, including satellite distribution, copyright infringement and First Amendment claims.
Ms. Hill has handled technology, IP, compliance, and international business matters for more than twenty-five years. This strong background allows her to work closely with clients including retailers, logistics companies, service providers, platform operators and others to ensure that they are prepared for privacy and cybersecurity requirements imposed on them by laws and by their customers. She enjoys helping clients develop policies, contracts, and workflows that protect information assets and thereby confer a competitive edge. Among other things, she creates data processing and cross-border transfer agreements; counsels U.S. and international companies on compliance with privacy laws including the GDPR and CCPA; serves as privileging counsel on security and compliance audits; and handles data breach response. Ms. Hill writes and speaks frequently on data security and privacy issues. She also routinely handles technology licenses, SaaS agreements, and general commercial services agreements.
Ms. Hill has an extensive background in media and intellectual property issues and has handled film productions, media and sponsorship rights, program distribution, and music licensing. In addition, she has spent significant time overseas, having resided in London to oversee a client’s legal function in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Ms. Hill is also part of the Taylor English CTA Task Force and provides strategic advice to help reporting companies identify and analyze their compliance requirements under the Corporate Transparency Act.
In her free time, Ms. Hill works to support Georgians diagnosed with ALS, reads avidly, and supports the Tide. She also travels, and has been to Egypt, Hong Kong, Jordan, New Zealand, Syria, Thailand and other points distant.
