Lisa B. Ellingson

I learn all I can to develop the best strategy for my clients’ circumstances.

My Approach

Now more than ever, data and technology are involved in every part of our lives. They affect how we work, how we communicate, and even how we sleep. And because of its pervasiveness in our lives, technology is the subject of near-constant legal changes and challenges. For my litigation clients in the technology space, the success of their businesses can depend on things like defending trade secrets and enforcing commercialization agreements. I enjoy navigating the constantly changing landscape of new information and technologies within a legal framework to help my clients further their business goals.

As part of my technology practice, I also advise clients related to data protection and privacy. I assist clients with a wide range of privacy issues, from website privacy policies to incident response. I am the Co-Chair of Winthrop & Weinstine’s Data Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice Group.  I am also a Certified Information Privacy Professional / United States (CIPP/US) and a Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM), and I regularly give presentations on privacy issues.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two young children. I am also active in the international Korean adoptee community, and am a Regional Governor for the International Association of Korean Lawyers.
