A team that serves clients in mature and emerging industries
As a firm deeply embedded in the financial services industry – we have a nationwide ranking from Chambers USA in consumer financial services regulation, compliance, and litigation (including class actions) – we have had to address issues large and small related to technology, cybersecurity, and data privacy for our financial services clients. Moreover, as a vendor serving these clients, we have firsthand experience with the real-world business and legal issues facing organizations of all types – namely, the need to manage security risks related to technology and to meet the expectations of both regulators and customers in the arena of data privacy.
We also have extensive experience working with companies in mature industries – for example, petrochemicals and energy – where their businesses intersect with technology. We help them address the regulatory compliance and operational issues they face related to technology, cybersecurity, and data privacy. Our Technology team lawyers are leaders in educating clients about the legal implications of developments in FinTech, blockchain, artificial intelligence, drone, and other technologies.
We have particular strength advising clients in the areas of:
- Cloud services contracts
- Cyber insurance
- Cybersecurity litigation
- Data security – regulatory compliance
- Data security – breach and incident response
- Data privacy – regulatory compliance
- Electronic contracting
- Hardware and software agreements
- IT outsourcing
- Privacy litigation and regulatory enforcement
- Service-level agreements
- Technology licensing agreements
In addition to advising our clients on regulatory compliance, contracts, and litigation, we work to anticipate the long-range needs of their businesses – providing counsel on risk management, indemnification, and other measures to minimize the threat of future liability.
