Armstrong Teasdale has a dedicated Privacy and Data Security practice area composed of lawyers who work across disciplines and routinely advise businesses on compliance and risk management, risk assessment, breach response, privacy policies and practices, employee training, regulatory inquiries, intellectual property and trade secrets, GDPR, investigations and litigation. Knowledgeable in both U.S. and international law, several of our skilled lawyers hold key credentials as Certified Information Privacy Professionals and Certified Ethical Hackers.
Our experienced attorneys have worked on data privacy and security issues in various industries including financial services, insurance, retail, communications, health care, manufacturing, technology, and energy and utilities. Drawing upon the broad experience of our attorneys and the firm’s industry-specific knowledge, we use a coordinated approach to assess risk and vulnerability and develop compliance solutions to mitigate the risk of theft or breaches. We believe that being proactive and incorporating privacy by design principles when possible will help our clients respond to government regulators’ expectations while avoiding or minimizing competitive and reputational harm. Further, the team’s trial lawyers have extensive experience representing individuals and organizations in complex commercial disputes, class actions and other litigation involving data breaches, the misappropriation of trade secrets, computer tampering, nondisclosure and noncompete agreements, and more.
The team has authored a guide that provides a detailed overview of information privacy and data security laws relevant to U.S. businesses. Be sure to pick up a copy from Armstrong Teasdale’s booth while attending the conference.
