Nareg is a specialized technology attorney with Fasken's Privacy and Cybersecurity group. Nareg provides practical and actionable advice to some of Canada’s leading institutions and startups, leaning on over six years of advisory experience at the intersection of law and tech.

His practice focuses on data protection issues, with a particular penchant for cybersecurity breach preparation and response (incl. bespoke advisory work, gap assessments, crisis simulation, and holistic breach response). He also acts as a subject matter expert for corporate transactions. He has broad experience with the Canadian privacy landscape and is a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/C). He is a board member of the Young Bar of Montreal and chairs its technology law committee.

Before joining Fasken, he contributed to the launch of an integrated data privacy and cybersecurity legal practice within one of Canada's Big 4. He also helped start-ups navigate the legal and tech regulatory space at a boutique law firm and advised corporations on how to live long, happy, healthy lives when he worked at a national Canadian law firm. He was a driver for innovative projects to improve access to justice through technology at the Cyberjustice Laboratory for three years prior to private practice. Nareg is a regular speaker (and attendee) at conferences on topics related to law and technology.
