In today’s world, where companies are collecting, using, and sharing personal information on an unprecedented scale, honoring consumers’ choices about how data is used and disclosed and securing personal data from unauthorized disclosure is critical.  We have been pioneers in the dynamic area of privacy and security law, serving highly regulated industries, such as communications, healthcare and financial services, for decades.  As privacy and information security requirements have evolved to extend beyond these historically regulated industries to apply to virtually every business organization, we have expanded our counseling to advise companies in other industry sectors, such as technology, media, entertainment, retail, advertising, and more.   Our core Privacy and Security team counsels clients regarding internal employee information, consumer-facing requirements associated with marketing and payments, protecting companies from cyber-attacks, cross-border data transfers, vendor management, due diligence in the context of mergers and acquisitions, and more.
