Privacy and Cybersecurity

Regulatory Insiders and Experienced Practitioners Facing Down the Biggest Cyber Threats in the World

As a part of our privacy and cybersecurity team, you’ll collaborate with colleagues around the globe to help clients navigate a constantly changing set of regulations, requirements, and enforcement issues.

Led by former senior officials who served in the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, the DOJ’s National Security Division, DHS, and other regulatory agencies, our team advises on issues arising from the collection, use, maintenance, and security of information. 

Our clients’ sectors range from the financial industry, high tech and life sciences, the Internet of things, social networks, connected mobility, biotechnologies, and more. Because a large percentage of Wilson Sonsini’s clients are technology and life sciences companies, our team is especially skilled at addressing the unique issues that arise when privacy matters intersect with innovation. 

From helping manage government investigations and enforcement actions to assisting during crisis situations resulting from security incidents, our team offers a full range of counseling and investigatory support. The team’s attorneys represent clients in complex, multi-jurisdictional privacy matters and work on a daily basis with local counsel in 85+ countries. Newer lawyers on this team benefit from the same unique qualities our clients do: a highly experienced team of senior leaders who can mentor you to succeed in a comprehensive global practice that fully supports our client’s privacy and cybersecurity needs.
