Foley’s Privacy, Security & Information Management Practice (Privacy Practice) delivers practical and strategic advice on a global basis to help companies mitigate risks from the collection and processing of information.
Our team has broad and deep experience, having handled compliance matters for some of the largest global companies, as well as start-up companies that focus on the use of information as a core business asset. Our team also has handled a number of high-profile security breaches, cutting-edge privacy litigation, and a number of significant matters before the FTC, the HHS Office of Civil Rights, and state attorneys general.
Building upon Foley’s commitment to client service, which as been recognized by The BTI Consulting Group (Wellesley, MA) in its 2013 Client Service A-Team Report, the depth and quality of the Privacy Practice is widely acknowledged. The Privacy Practice was ranked in the top three practices in the world by Computerworld, and the practice has been ranked by Chambers USA in the areas of privacy and data security and privacy and data security: health care (2012), as well as by The Legal 500. We have significant experience with counseling clients in the health care, financial services, targeted advertising, online, and telecommunications industries, and also have played a key role in crafting privacy laws in Asia. Our attorneys also are thought leaders in the use and protection of information, having written leading treatises and law review articles that have been cited as authority by a number of Circuit Courts.
