Our Privacy and Data Protection team has been shortlisted by Chambers and Partners for a Chambers USA Award as “Privacy & Data Security Team of the Year” in recognition of our “outstanding work, strategic growth, and client service excellence” over the past year. We are one of only seven privacy and data security teams in the United States to be nominated. Nominees for the award are determined by research and interviews conducted by 150 full-time editors and researchers at Chambers and Partners. The winner of the award will be announced during the Chambers USA Awards 2015 ceremony on May 19 at Cipriani in New York City.
Our award-winning, cross-disciplinary Privacy and Data Protection team is led by Partners Ted Kobus and Jerry Ferguson and consists of more than 40 lawyers who counsel clients in the U.S. and internationally. We have helped organizations respond to more than 750 privacy incidents and that experience has created a high demand for the comprehensive, proactive compliance counseling we provide. Chambers USA ranked us with “considerable praise” in its 2014 edition and identified us as being “Recommended for Client Service” and “Recommended for Commercial Awareness.” Our team is also ranked in Chambers Global for “USA, Privacy & Data Security.” Law360 recognized us as one of the nation’s best practices, selecting the team as a “Practice Group of the Year” for Privacy in 2013 and 2014. Law360 also has named Kobus and Class Action Defense team leader Paul Karlsgodt as Law360 MVPs for Privacy & Consumer Protection. We have experienced exponential growth in 2014 and 2015 with the addition of high-profile laterals, including Randy Gainer in Seattle; Tanya Forsheit, Scott Koller, and Alan Friel in Los Angeles; Eric Packel in Philadelphia; Melinda McLellan in New York; and, most recently, Will Daugherty in Houston.
