Data increasingly powers the economy in our borderless digital world. We keep you on track as technology and privacy regulations evolve, and vigorously defend you if the need arises.
New technology, new rules
Privacy and data security are fundamental to maintaining competitive advantage and managing your company's risk.
An increasingly valuable asset for every company, data has to be handled sensitively. And as technology and the law evolve, we all have to continuously keep up with data compliance regulations—particularly if you're a global business working across territories with varying regulations.
In the absence of clear directives and stable legal standards, our team is at the forefront of shaping the law—advising both policymakers and businesses.
Ahead of the game
Our priority is to help you protect your interests, exploit your assets and stay on the right side of the law. We limit your exposure through advisory services, policies, response plans and strategic management.
Providing more than legal defense, we plan ahead for success—setting up proactive commercial and security systems around your data management. But if there is a data breach or privacy issue, we'll minimize the damage to your business, finances and reputation.
With team members experienced at the highest levels of government, we're a leading voice in shaping policy, regulation and laws in Washington. Our team is truly integrated, with deep legal experience across a range of industries.
We're at the forefront of health information data exchange and privacy issues. And we have a superb track record for negotiating client compensation for costs stemming from data breaches.
