Iara Griffith is a lawyer in our Montréal office’s Privacy and Cybersecurity Law group. She is particularly interested in issues related to privacy, emerging technologies, and the ethics of artificial intelligence.
Iara advises clients in various industries with respect to the application of Canadian privacy legislation and related laws.
Holder of a Bachelor of Law from the Université du Québec à Montréal, she is currently completing a Graduate Diploma in Legal Translation at McGill University. Her research on mandatory privacy policies has made her a firm believer in the need for plain language in the legal field, notably in regard to transparency obligations. Iara thus strives to make complex contractual provisions clear for her clients.
Iara lends her keen wordsmith’s eye to clients, assisting them in drafting, reviewing, revising, or translating contracts, such as specialized service agreements, SaaS agreements, or share or asset purchase agreements.Before joining Fasken, Iara practiced in the corporate and real estate divisions of a Montréal-based law firm.
