Cyber risk is an ever-changing and complicated area of law. Just a few hundred stolen records could result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fines and penalties, and with investigation, crisis management, and customer notification, the cost can often balloon to over a million dollars.
Our team, comprised of both litigators and corporate counsel, understand the complex legal framework, underlying technologies, and business concerns, which enables us to provide not only legal defense, but also risk management.
If a cyber incident occurs, our top trial attorneys are prepared to defend clients in the commercial litigation that follows. When professionals, directors, officers, or companies face cyber-related liability, we analyze the key legal and administrative issues and vigorously pursue efficient and cost-effective resolution.
In addition to defending cyber claims, we assist our clients in implementing cutting-edge data loss prevention strategies tailored to suit their businesses and unique potential exposures. Our attorneys provide advice on issues relating to electronic privacy and data security. In so doing, we work closely with our clients to evaluate their risk management and commercial needs and design effective approaches to manage their cyber risks and exposures.
The team is led by Rick Anderson and Frank Carroll. Rick Anderson is Board Certified in Consumer and Commercial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
