Today’s businesses operate in an environment marked by evolving and complex data protection laws and relentless cyber attacks by both private and state-sponsored actors. Remaining competitive while ensuring regulatory compliance across multiple jurisdictions and implementing a strong cyber defense can be daunting. Crowell offers companies an integrated approach to managing privacy and cybersecurity risks combining legal, technical, and regulatory experience in a single seamless team across global markets.

Crowell’s Privacy & Cybersecurity Group includes lawyers with extensive government, in-house, consulting, and technical experience across multiple industries. Where necessary, we integrate Crowell’s intellectual property, corporate, insurance, white collar, trade secrets, health care, energy, transportation, and government contracts capabilities to address the privacy and cybersecurity risks faced by our clients. We also work closely with our affiliate, C&M International, which is deeply involved with the privacy laws of Pacific Rim nations. Our lawyers regularly work with forensic professionals and coordinate with law enforcement.
