Mayer Brown Legal Update
On Monday 1 August 2016 the EU-US Privacy Shield regime 'went live', replacing the Safe Harbour regime (which had been declared invalid by the European Court of Justice). Under the Privacy Shield regime personal data can be transferred from member states of the EU and the European Economic Area to specific entities in the United States which can certify themselves compliant with the Privacy Shield Principles. However as we explain below this will have little, if any, impact on financial institutions faced with requests to transfer data from the EU to the US in connection with US litigation.

Mayer Brown Legal Update
The European Securities and Markets Authority ("ESMA") has said that there are "no significant obstacles" impeding the application of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive ("AIMFD") passport to Canada, Guernsey, Japan, Jersey and Switzerland, as it published its advice on extending the passport to 12 non-European Economic Area countries on 19 July 2016. The conclusions ESMA reached mean that it would be difficult for the European Commission, Parliament and Council not to grant these five jurisdictions AIMFD passporting rights in the future.
