Global Data Review has recognized Morrison & Foerster as one of the top 20 firms handling the world’s most complex and significant global data mandates in its inaugural GDR 100 publication. The series identifies leading law firms focusing not only on data protection and privacy, but also on all aspects of legal advice relating to corporate use, monetization, and trade of data.
Morrison & Foerster's highly respected global privacy and data security group is a destination practice comprised of more than 60 lawyers in offices across the United States, Europe, and Asia. Our cross disciplinary team provides creative and practical advice concerning all stages of the information life cycle, from privacy compliance to incident response. We are counseling, litigating cases, and representing clients before regulators around the world.
We are recognized as an undisputed leader in privacy and data security worldwide. Our practice is known for designing global privacy plans that work across borders, making us uniquely suited to advise clients on compliance with new privacy laws anywhere they exist. Our multidisciplinary privacy practice is known for our legal work across disciplines, including life sciences, financial services, employment, healthcare, privacy litigation, technology transactions, and cutting-edge technology issues, with our team having been awarded for its work on innovative projects at the intersection of technology and privacy. We also offer unparalleled expertise when cybersecurity incidents occur, having handled more major breaches than any other firm. And while our privacy litigators work seamlessly with our regulatory and compliance teams to develop a defense plan before any litigation arises, if/when litigation does occur, we have a deep bench and a long and successful track record defending high-stakes cases that threaten a company’s brand reputation, business model, and bottom line.
Our extensive experience with data protection laws, multidisciplinary approach, seamless coordination across teams, and geographic reach, uniquely position us to handle virtually any privacy or data security issue anywhere in the world.
