Regulation and enforcement of privacy and cybersecurity matters have grown precipitously as government authorities respond to new technologies, privacy concerns, and cyberattacks.  Companies today are facing new compliance obligations, greater legal uncertainty, and increasing liability and business risk. We help our clients comply with evolving local, federal, and global privacy regulations; implement privacy by design and best practices; and resolve legal demands and privacy litigation – while also making the most of their data assets and business opportunities.  Equally adept at cybersecurity issues and incident response, we help clients implement a comprehensive approach to minimize legal and business risk through preparedness, timely and effective response to data breaches and, when necessary, skillfully defend against related lawsuits and government actions.
