USA - Nationwide Privacy & Data Security Legal Rankings

Ranking Tables

The rights of public and private enterprises to access, use and store the data of individuals has only become more of a high-profile debate as the twenty-first century progresses. Businesses across the USA and internationally require advice on everyday data policies as well as plans for a data breach. Chambers' USA - Nationwide Privacy & Data Security table highlights lawyers and law firms who are best equipped to handle all manner of privacy-related crises, as well as strategic planning and compliance.

Attorneys ranked in our Litigation sub-table specialize in contentious privacy and data matters, while lawyers with expertise in HIPAA and other health-specific data concerns are ranked in the Healthcare sub-table. Lawyers with practices suitable for both of these tables, along with those whose work fits within the main Privacy & Data Security table, contribute towards their firm's ranking. A spotlight Healthcare table also exists to recognize firms with a dedicated healthcare practice.

The importance of this area of law has led it to be a priority for many big-hitting US and international firms. In particular, those with longstanding connections to the tech sector are highly regarded. Hogan Lovells, Morrison & Foerster and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe are among the firms with outstanding privacy and data practices. Individually ranked lawyers include such luminaries as Lisa Sotto, top healthcare attorneys Kirk Nahra and Marcy Wilder, and highly lauded litigator Douglas Meal.
