Information Governance

A natural extension of the firm’s nationally acclaimed intellectual property practice, our information governance lawyers draw on a wealth of experience in the use and security of information for our corporate clients. We provide cutting-edge advice about regulatory compliance, data governance, electronic discovery, risk management, privacy, data storage and knowledge management.

Regulatory Compliance

In an increasingly stringent regulatory climate, businesses must scrutinize every aspect of their analytics, business intelligence, and data management processes to ensure compliance in the United States, and in every other world market in which they operate. The attorneys in our Information Governance group leverage their comprehensive understanding of U.S. and international privacy and data laws, regulations and requirements to provide strategic counsel on information privacy and security, including digital trade and cross-border data flows.

Governance Plans

We help our clients comply with data protection laws governing the collection, use, storage, and transfer of information worldwide. Deeply experienced in the use of data analytics to mine value and mitigate risk, we are uniquely qualified to develop efficient and effective information governance plans. Operating in highly regulated industries such as financial services, health care, pharmaceutical, transportation, hospitality, and online retail, we assess how data is accumulated and stored and help establish an information management framework consistent with other aspects of corporate governance and risk management to meet their goals and business objectives.

Regulatory Investigations

Our world-class team of litigators adeptly handle regulatory compliance investigations and disputes and related issues that arise in the rapidly-evolving arena of information governance. We have helped clients respond to demands for compliance records, fight data management bans and suspensions, and mitigate claims of security breaches and related data concerns.
