About McDonald Hopkins:

We live data privacy 24/7. Our attorneys deal with data breaches and privacy compliance every day. For more than a decade, the Data Privacy and Cybersecurity team at McDonald Hopkins has counseled clients in responding to over 4,000 data breaches and privacy incidents throughout the world and in nearly every industry. When a data breach occurs, it’s fast moving and there’s no time to spare. Our attorneys recognize that a comprehensive approach to data privacy and cybersecurity is the most effective means to avoid a data privacy incident and is the best way to be prepared to respond to a breach if necessary. From data security planning and knowledge of regulations, creation, implementation and training on policies, to appropriate response to data security breaches, we provide effective and cost-efficient legal solutions.

Our Data Privacy and Cybersecurity attorneys have a wealth of experience advising clients on best practices for data privacy, security, storage, and disposal. Our team specializes in coaching clients through the myriad of rapidly changing state, federal, international and industry-specific privacy and breach notification laws, drafting and implementing proactive measures and employee training. Our experienced team also provides client support during investigations by state, federal and international regulators. We have significant experience in litigation prosecution (indemnification) and litigation defense (single plaintiff and class action). That experience, together with the experienced business litigators and technology law experts at McDonald Hopkins, provides for a wide range of support for our clients dealing with these issues on a daily basis.
