Data Privacy & Security

Government Investigations and Litigation

Oversight is continuing to increase in the data privacy and security space. Whether the challenge comes from a government investigator or a private plaintiff, we can assist by:

  • Developing a strategy and appropriate response to inquiries or subpoenas from government agencies
  • Conducting internal investigations to identify risks faced because of a breach or legal violation
  • Conducting internal investigations in response to data privacy or security complaints
  • Settling or, if needed, litigating claims made against you

Success Stories

Office for Civil Rights Victory

The federal Office for Civil Rights (OCR) investigates possible HIPAA violations. In 2015, a health care client received an OCR investigation request regarding a patient complaint. We assisted the client by reviewing the alleged incident, the client’s policies and procedures, and by proposing a response to OCR. The matter was then closed by OCR, without further action.
