Uber Hires Hogan Lovells for Internal Privacy Review

Updated on

Uber Technologies Inc. hired law firm Hogan Lovells’ data-privacy experts to conduct an internal data-privacy review, moving to tamp down criticism after an executive discussed prying on journalists’ private lives.

Uber said in a blog post today that it hired Harriet Pearson, formerly the chief privacy officer at International Business Machines Corp. and now a partner at Hogan Lovells, to work with the San Francisco-based startup. Pearson said in a phone call that she will work for Uber as a legal adviser.
