Pavel (Pasha) A. Sternberg is an associate in the Tech Transactions & Data Privacy practice. Pasha regularly advises clients of all sizes, and across industry segments, on domestic and international privacy and cybersecurity regulations. Pasha works to help clients implement compliance and remediation efforts to comply with these laws, including CCPA, GDPR, HIPAA, and GLBA. Pasha began his career in-house helping to develop and manage a full-scale privacy program at a large health care entity, and so is familiar with the realities of managing a compliance program in a complex regulatory environment.

As part of those efforts, Pasha advises companies through the investigation and notification stages, and assists them in responding to investigations launched by both federal and state regulators. Prior to joining Polsinelli, Pasha was an associate at a global law firm in San Francisco. Prior to that, Pasha assisted hundreds of companies through cyber incidents as a Privacy Breach Response Manager.
