Privacy and

Information Security



Privacy and information security is one of the fastest growing and important areas of law today — and one of the most challenging. It’s a legal area that matters more and more, as technology provides new ways to gather, store and move information — and to steal it and abuse it.


We can help you and help protect you — whether you or your business need to comply with fast-changing laws or whether you need redress because your private information has been invaded or compromised.

We specialize in litigation, domestic privacy law, constitutional rights to privacy, and national security policy and law.


Our team includes recognized leaders — lawyers with deep knowledge of both the law and the technology that affects privacy and security.
