Practice Groups

Privacy, Data & Cyber Law

Rivkin Radler’s Privacy, Data & Cyber Law Practice Group can help your organization face privacy and cyber security threats with confidence. Our multidisciplinary team understands best practices and legal requirements across a wide array of business entities and industry sectors, such as healthcare, lawyers and other professionals, pharmaceuticals, manufacturers, distributors and service providers.

We help our clients anticipate, identify and close vulnerabilities where possible. And in the rare instance when a data vulnerability is exploited, we help our clients provide a swift response and remedy.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in advising clients on compliance issues related to HIPAA and the HITECH Act; negotiating contracts related to data, technology and cyber insurance; and litigating matters on privacy breaches, domain-name disputes, cybersquatting, freedom of speech, “click wrap” contracts, malpractice, attorney-client privilege, confidentiality and antitrust and trademark violations.

We can work with your organization to conduct a risk assessment, implement a compliance program, train your workforce and respond to any threats and breaches. We proactively counsel on how to collect, use, disclose and dispose of data and sensitive information in a way that maintains its privacy, security and accessibility. And our group will be there when, despite your best efforts, there is a loss of data.
