The threat of data privacy and cybersecurity incidents has never been higher, and no business or industry is immune. Our dedicated team works closely with clients to prepare for potential risks, including prevention methods, counseling and incident preparedness planning. However, in the event an incident does occur and litigation ensues, our team is exceptionally equipped to defend clients before state and federal courts and regulatory bodies.
A data privacy breach is challenging enough, but add to it the threat of litigation, and the complex web of state, federal and international data privacy and security regulations, and it becomes ever more important to have a deep knowledge of the laws at issue. In addition to our extensive litigation experience defending against claims and investigations related to data privacy and cybersecurity, members of our team have earned CIPP/US, CIPP/E and CIPM qualifications, making us exceptionally well-versed in the global privacy environment, including a deep understanding of the laws commonly at issue in privacy litigation. Our experienced litigators nimbly guide clients through the parallel complexities of the court system and the underlying legislative and regulatory rules that are implicated in litigation that arises from a data breach, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and state consumer protection laws.
