Sigma7 has hired former Dentons lawyer and global compliance officer Deborah Rimmler as general counsel, as the new risk management services startup manages its rapid growth since its 2021 debut.
Rimmler has advised Dentons’ global clients on security and privacy issues, and negotiated collaborative agreements with privacy breach notification and compliance monitoring vendors.
“Beyond her impeccable legal credentials, Deborah brings significant cybersecurity, security, technology and intelligence experience,” CEO of Sigma7
Andrew Hersh said in a statement.
Rimmler will guide the risk management services consultancy and compliance platform on legal and compliance operations and help shape the enterprise’s risk management services for its more than 350 global clients.
Rimmler was previously general counsel at Nexant, where she developed global ethics, anti-corruption and renewable energy certificate programs and led legal operations for the energy services and software company.
Dentons, the self-proclaimed “world’s largest law firm“, has seen a slew of departures amid years of missed revenue targets and the ousting of former CEO Mike McNamara in 2021.
The firm also saw the departure of its former London-based assistant general counsel, Reshma Raja, who joined UK Reynolds Porter Chamberlain as a partner in July.
