ABOUT

Janet V. Hallahan provides collaborative and timely guidance to her clients on how to commercialize and protect their businesses through the strategic use of interconnected technology and clouds, privacy/cybersecurity, intellectual property rights and data use. With experience in both private practice and in-house legal departments, she brings a unique understanding of businesses’ needs to balance increasingly complex legal, privacy and risk requirements against tight internal timelines and budgets. Janet focusses her practice on privacy and data security, cloud computing/software, outsourcing, corporate and technology transactions as well as the licensing, protection and sale of intellectual property and related commercial agreements. She is certified as a CIPP/US information privacy professional by the International Association of Privacy Professionals, through which she has a broad understanding of how emerging technologies and expanded data transmissions impact privacy and cyberliability compliance across industries, including healthcare, fintech and non-profits. Janet has regularly spoken on technology, privacy and governance matters, and has frequently made presentations to the board of directors of her clients. She has taught as an adjunct professor of law at Temple University School of Law, and currently teaches a class on Healthcare Data Security, Privacy and Technology at Rutgers University School of Law (Newark and Camden).

In addition, Janet has made a career-long commitment to give back to the community. She has provided decades of pro bono legal services to artists, writers, healthcare organizations, and non-profit organizations through the ProBonoPartnership, Philadelphia Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts and Philadelphia Volunteer Lawyers for the Indigent. In addition, she is committed to literacy and accessible education, and as a law professor has endeavored to make her teaching materials available at no cost to her students by using publicly available resources. She participates in the “Buy the Book” Program at Swarthmore College, where she purchases and donates textbooks for students who might otherwise not be able to afford them. Janet has served as a volunteer board member for her local library for years, which has recently updated its strategic plan to expand access of its materials based on community stakeholder input.

When Janet is not working, she enjoys rowing in regattas, travelling the world with her family, painting, and learning to play her father’s banjo.
