Cybersecurity & Privacy Litigation

Intro

Our Privacy Litigation attorneys bring a diverse range of experiences to bear in resolving disputes in the increasingly complex world of privacy law. The team includes a certified privacy professional, a former federal prosecutor, an electronic data expert and decades of combined litigation experience. Consistent with the firm’s emphasis on collaboration, we also work closely with the privacy specialists in other practice groups and industry teams.

Cybersecurity is now a paramount issue for companies in every industry, and security breaches are virtually inevitable. Most business leaders realize that a breach of data security will lead to regulatory and notification requirements. But are you prepared for the litigation that could ensue, filed by those whose data was compromised, or by government regulators? We stay on top of recent developments and best practices in cybersecurity in order to help you reduce your risk of legal liability, and to advocate for you in lawsuits arising from data security incidents.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is another hot-button subject of litigation. Companies and individuals consistently find themselves targeted by unwanted faxes, robo-calls and text messages, while advertisers find themselves exposed to severe liability for allegedly failing to abide by TCPA requirements. We represent businesses in TCPA litigation and help them navigate the statute’s requirements.

The explosion of recording and monitoring devices and tenability to disseminate information online has also led to a surge in lawsuits alleging eavesdropping and such common-law invasion of privacy claims as intrusion into seclusion, publication of private facts, false light, defamation and infringement of the right of publicity. Our attorneys are deeply experienced in litigating these legal theories, and stay up to date on the diverse new ways that privacy rights are being invaded.
