Data & Privacy Litigation and Investigations

Protecting You After the Breach

Another day, another data breach. Data breaches have been making the headlines all too frequently — and there's no sign of this changing as technology advances, and we become even more reliant on it. Our attorneys have defended and investigated some of the largest breaches to date. That's why a regional hospital called on Mintz when faced with a breach and loss of nearly one million medical and financial records.

Our Experience

Case Study
A Mintz attorney advised the publisher of a major American newspaper regarding a data breach involving 200,000 subscribers' personal information. Mintz helped the client set up call centers, notify subscribers, and negotiate a multistate and Federal Trade Commission resolution without enforcement actions.
Case Study
When data belonging to one of the client's large customers was exposed, Mintz helped the client develop a timely response and limit its exposure. The firm's Certified Privacy Professionals have helped companies manage data security incidents for over 15 years.
Case Study
A Mintz attorney assisted a Fortune 500 company with a multistate investigation of a data breach involving credit, debit card, and check information. The client avoided government enforcement action and obtained complete dismissal of a class action. Mintz counseled the company on risk management and response.
