Nadeem W. Schwen

The only thing I enjoy more than creatively solving problems is getting the result my client wants.

My Approach

As a shareholder at Winthrop & Weinstine, I focus on the intersection of law and technology. With more than 10 years of experience in data privacy, cybersecurity, and intellectual property matters, I take a practical and solution-oriented approach to helping my clients navigate complex legal issues in a way that meets their business needs. My background in computer engineering further enables me to develop a deep understanding of the relevant technology, and then apply that understanding to create the best available outcome for my clients. I also serve as Data Protection Officer for a number of companies, and routinely advise boards of directors and C-suite executives on various technology-related legal issues. I currently serve as cochair of the Minneapolis/St. Paul chapter of the International Association of Privacy Professionals, and am a regular speaker and author on data privacy and security topics.
