Our Privacy and Information Security attorneys work at the leading edge of privacy and data security law, guiding companies through dozens of regulatory inquiries and investigations, enforcement actions and litigation brought each year by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and state attorneys general. Our class action attorneys are known for their integrity while protecting a company’s brand and reputation regarding lawsuits involving consumer protection and data privacy.
In every case, our goal is minimize the risk and to achieve the outcome that makes the most sense for our clients—whether that’s closure of an inquiry or investigation, a favorable negotiated settlement or successful litigation of an enforcement action.
Members of our team have a unique regulatory perspective developed from years of serving with the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. We have a deep bench of experienced consumer protection litigators, including a former chief counsel to an attorney general who oversaw law enforcement investigations involving consumer protection and data privacy. Our attorneys enjoy strong relationships and a well-earned reputation for integrity and credibility with attorneys at every level of the FTC and in the offices of state attorneys general. We also have an impressive record negotiating with state and federal regulators to close investigations amicably, including dozens of cases over the last decade in which we’ve convinced FTC staff not to recommend enforcement action to the Commission. We’ve also negotiated assurances of voluntary compliance in both single- and multi-state matters brought by state attorneys general.
We serve clients in all types of highly scrutinized industries, including consumer products and retail, hotel and leisure, and financial services, as well as telecommunications, broadband, technology and mobile services. While our team works with clients facing investigations or litigation related to all kinds of privacy issues, we are especially effective in matters at the intersection of consumer privacy and marketing and advertising, including enforcement actions and consumer class actions involving the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and other telemarketing and consumer privacy laws.
