Raitinger expands her practice, earns data privacy certification

Graves Garrett is pleased to announce that associate attorney Callie Pippin Raitinger recently earned her Certified Information Privacy Professional credential for the U.S. Private Sector (CIPP/US) through the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). This certification recognizes that Raitinger demonstrated a strong foundation in U.S. private-sector privacy laws and regulations and an understanding of the legal requirements for the responsible transfer of sensitive personal data.

“Data privacy and information security is an expansive universe of the law that touches on nearly every aspect of business these days, and it will only continue to become more relevant as more comprehensive federal laws are put into place and as we, as a society, continue to digitize,” Raitinger said. “Obtaining this certification stresses the emphasis our firm puts on staying up to date with all aspects of an ever-changing legal landscape facing businesses. I look forward to adding value to Graves Garrett clients by helping them to obtain compliance with data-related laws and regulations, establish risk mitigation programs, and manage a data breach – should one occur; and in representing them in civil suits and government investigations related to data privacy and information security practices.”

In addition to data privacy and information security work, Raitinger’s practice at Graves Garrett includes representing businesses in the defense of civil, criminal, and regulatory investigations, along with counseling clients in matters of corporate compliance. Her experience ranges from intellectual property and business disputes to contract law and employment related matters. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Association for Women Lawyers of Greater Kansas City, where she serves as Chair of the Awards & Scholarships Committee. She is also active in leadership positions within the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association, currently serving on the Wellness Committee and the Communications Advisory Committee.
