Our highly ranked, interdisciplinary privacy and cyber practice delivers full-spectrum legal support around the globe, to solve today’s complex and dynamic compliance, regulatory, litigation, and transactional challenges. Our innovative strategies and standard of excellence promote the best outcomes and long-term success for our clients.
Counseling & Compliance Strategies
Regulators expect organizations to identify and manage privacy and cyber risk as they design, build, and operate innovative products and services. We work with global clients to implement privacy programs and create compliant processes, products, and services. We excel at prioritizing activities and outcomes to enable our clients to convincingly demonstrate how they have met their legal obligations, whether under the patchwork of US federal and state privacy and security laws, the European and UK General Data Protection Regulations, or the multitude of increasingly similar regimes around the globe. Our pragmatic, risk-based advice takes into account the requirements of these global privacy regimes to develop a streamlined operational model that businesses can implement.
Regulatory & Litigation Defense
We defend companies facing high-profile, complex, and often enterprise-threatening privacy and cyber regulatory enforcement matters and lawsuits in jurisdictions around the world. We have a proven track record of securing voluntary closures of regulatory inquiries and winning cases, and when we cannot, we work to achieve the best possible outcome for clients by leveraging our deep knowledge of the law, the facts, and the forum.
Cyber Incident Response
In the immediate aftermath of ransomware, theft, data leakage, and other major cyber incidents, we deliver just-in-time, experience-based legal advice and crisis response services to mitigate liability and competitive, reputational, or security harms. We offer full-spectrum services, assisting with internal and external investigations, disclosure and interaction with law enforcement, breach notification issues, and cyber insurance policies and claims.
Our global team offers pragmatic, commercial advice, enabling clients to derive value from their data while ensuring compliance with the law. Our lawyers bring a unique cross-section of knowledge and experience spanning data, technology, and commercial issues to advise clients on the deployment of new and innovative technologies, new vendor arrangements, data licensing, and use of alternative and big data. Our privacy and cyber partners actively partner with our pre-eminent capital markets, private equity, M&A, and public company representation practices to deliver critical strategic insights at key moments before, during, and after a major corporate transaction.
