Today’s businesses collect volumes of information about individuals in the name of providing better products and services. While this wealth of information offers unparalleled opportunities, it also poses unprecedented risks.

Our transactional team of data professionals counsels clients through the litany of state and federal compliance statutes, while our litigation team helps clients of all types work through the fallout from an alleged privacy violation or data breach. Our team also provides invaluable  advice on initial investigative and response efforts, comprehensive government investigations, complex class action litigation and multidistrict litigation.

Whether you run a small business or a multinational corporation, data security and compliance issues need to be effectively addressed. Lindquist’s experienced attorneys work to prioritize and execute the various requirements to which your company is subject and minimize the liability to which it may be exposed. We strive to put our clients in the best possible position through every phase, from data breach prevention and remediation to providing support and guidance during a data security incident.

The repercussions of a data breach can be seemingly endless.

Our litigation team is experienced in handling all varieties of data claims, including:

  • Civil litigation claims arising from the loss of data
  • Defending privacy breach claims in highly regulated financial services,   insurance, mobile app, and health law industries
  • Government investigations
  • Disclosure and reporting requirements
  • Enforcing insurance coverage for suspected or confirmed data breaches

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
