The Data Security & Privacy Practice Group at Kirkland focuses on the evolving business, technological, and legal issues relating to the security and privacy of networks and data. This multi-disciplinary practice group represents clients in investigations, crisis response to data breach incidents, litigation, government relations, counseling and transactions. The group consists of lawyers in different practice groups, with ground presence in the United States, Europe, and Asia. The group draws on the deep experience that many of its partners have had in government service, including a former U.S. Deputy Attorney General, a former U.S. attorney, a former Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission, and several senior Department of Justice Officials. Their backgrounds allow Kirkland to bring to bear unmatched experience on matters including application of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), Economic Espionage Act (as well as state trade secret laws), the Stored Communications Act (SCA), the Wiretap Act, Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), and other federal statutes at the heart of evolving issues in data security and privacy.
