Areas of Focus

Our Approach

We are one of the few legal teams — anywhere — with members that possess Privacy Professional certifications, including Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) certifications. Our practitioners' experience includes leading penetration tests, conducting forensic investigations of security incidents, advising on legislative and policy activities related to cybersecurity, and designing and implementing network security solutions for Fortune 500 companies. Whether you need guidance when collecting, storing, or transferring data (including through M&A, licensing, and other transactions), complying with key regulations, or even — in the worst case — representation after a data breach, we've handled it before.

Legislation & Policy Activity

We advise companies on the latest legislative and policy activities in the area of cybersecurity. We help clients analyze the business and legal implications of cyber-related orders, regulatory developments, and policy developments emanating from the White House, federal agencies like Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and in Congress, and public-private entities working on cybersecurity issues. We are also actively involved in reviewing, drafting, and analyzing cybersecurity legislation and oversight activities on Capitol Hill.

Our team is experienced with privacy provisions of the Communications Act, Electronic Communications Privacy Act, Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act.
