Every day, healthcare providers, government entities, financial institutions, data processors, and retailers of all scales collect personal information from their clients—information that, if stored, used, or shared improperly, can have complex and devastating consequences. BakerHostetler’s clients, including Fortune 500 and Fortune 50 companies, trust us to guide and counsel them in keeping that information secure, responding quickly when a data security incident occurs, and defending in litigation that may arise as a result. We proactively counsel clients to adopt policies, practices, and procedures that reduce exposure to data breaches.
As one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive practices in the area of data privacy and information security, we partner with clients to mitigate reputational and financial risks. We have helped clients recover from more than 750 data breaches, including 175 responses in the past year—a volume and breadth of experience resulting in effective and efficient action that minimizes liability, is cost conscious, and protects a company’s reputation.
Data breaches affect all industries and we represent a broad range of clients, from market leaders to niche marketers. We have been involved in some of the most significant privacy litigation in recent years, including as lead defense counsel for Schnuck Markets, Inc., Eisenhower Medical Center, Advocate Health, LivingSocial, Inc., Sentara Healthcare, and Vistaprint. We are a nation-leading practice in handling data privacy matters for health care, education, and financial services clients.
