Providing Clients with a Single Point of Expertise

Latham & Watkins' data privacy, security and cybercrime practitioners in Europe, the United States, Asia and the Middle East not only advise on compliance and best practices for data management and incident preparedness, but also excel at the just-in-time, experience-based legal advice that is needed in the immediate aftermath of cyber incidents.

Named 2013 “Privacy Group of the Year” by Law 360, Latham’s data privacy, security and cybercrime practitioners defend government investigations and other privacy proceedings, provide compliance advice focusing on cross-border and novel matters and issues, and advise on the privacy and data security aspects of multi-billion dollar transactions and investments. The hallmark of Latham’s Data Privacy, Security & Cybercrime Practice is the ability to deliver rapid global response capabilities on data protection or cyber security issues, and to develop innovative structures, processes and arguments to enable global organizations to comply with an increasingly complex (and often conflicting) global regulatory environment.
