Cybersecurity & Privacy Litigation

Cybersecurity & Privacy Litigation

Data breaches and privacy violations can trigger hefty monetary fines by regulators, multi-million settlements in lawsuits and class actions, and long-lasting reputational damage when handled without a well-thought-out legal defense strategy.

Our legal experts can help to manage a case from the moment a complaint is initiated, taking care of public relations strategy, communications with regulators and authorities, managing mandatory disclosures to impacted individuals, as well as dealing with discovery requests, managing depositions and the preparation of expert witnesses, leading settlement negotiations and defending your case in court. 

In addition, we can help to reduce your legal future exposure by reviewing and improving your cybersecurity and compliance processes and procedures.

Board Member & Executive Defense

Board Member & Executive Defense

Regulators increasingly hold executives and board members personally liable for privacy incidents, data breaches and other technology deficiencies, bringing administrative, civil and even criminal charges against corporate management and directors.

We can represent executives and companies in administrative, civil and criminal cases to prevent injustice, making your case by introducing technically sound evidence and highly qualified expert witnesses, and, when possible, even getting reimbursement of legal fees.

Additionally, we will work to obtain the best possible settlement with the smallest possible impact on your professional career, reputation and personal assets.

False Claims Act Investigations Defense

The US False Claims Act (FCA) is being incrementally used to go after federal contractors that contractually undertake but ultimately fail to maintain a prescribed level of cybersecurity or data. Financial penalties and other legal consequences can be extremely burdensome for federal contractors and even their subcontractors.

We will carefully examine your case and underlying facts, assess whether the accusations are supported by evidence, and then will help to prove your innocence or negotiate the most favorable settlement possible.

Once the case is over, our legal experts can also review your strategy, as well as contracting procedures, to prevent similar incidents and ensure frictionless collaboration with the federal government in the future.

International eDiscovery Assistance

Electronically Stored Information (ESI) can be essential to winning or losing a case. However, ESI often resides in overseas jurisdictions or foreign data centers beyond the reach of local courts.

Our legal professionals can help find the optimal way to obtain foreign-based digital evidence, while complying with applicable laws, international treaties and established procedures. Likewise, our attorneys can advise how and what ESI to request including digital evidence and various logs located in a multi-cloud environment, personal mobile and IoT devices or under the control of third parties or even governmental authorities.

With a solid evidentiary basis to support your claims, you increase the chances of a favorable result. In the event that you are the one served with a discovery request including international requests made under the Section 1782, our attorneys will advise whether you have a duty to disclose the sought information and to what extent, protecting your intellectual property and confidential data.

Cybercrime Prosecution Assistance

Cybercrime Prosecution Assistance

Cybercrime Prosecution Assistance

Transnational cybercrime has become borderless, more sophisticated and ultimately more difficult to both investigate and prosecute. In a complex legal landscape amid the intricacies of international law, cybercrime treaties and bilateral agreements with foreign states, breached companies and other victims of cybercrime often need support beyond what a government prosecutor can do.

Our legal experts can assess your chances of locating the perpetrators behind an attack against your business and pragmatically evaluate the chances of securing a criminal conviction at the end. Most importantly, our attorneys will evaluate whether it is all worth it as non-extraditable or judgment-proof defendants located in overseas jurisdictions are often able to negate all your efforts, merely offering a nominal victory in court but not a dime of compensation.

Additionally, our legal professionals can assist your company in communicating with local and foreign law enforcement agencies to expedite investigatory efforts and increase their efficiency.

IP Crimes Prosecution Assistance

IP Crimes Prosecution Assistance

Domain squatting, fake social network profiles and malicious mobile applications imitating your brand, massive copyright infringement, theft of multi-million-dollar trade secrets, deep fakes and other privacyintrusions are surging, while law enforcement agencies are understaffed and unequipped to handle the avalanche of incoming cases.

Our legal professionals can help take down infringing or malicious content by legal and judicial means, evaluate your chances of securing a criminal conviction or obtaining monetary compensation from the perpetrators, and assist in criminal or civil proceedings in court, as well as before arbitration authorities, for example, under WIPO’s Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and other international agreements.
