Sidley Austin LLP

Sidley Austin LLP’s privacy and cybersecurity practice group offers clients a global and interdisciplinary team of lawyers focused on a broad range of emerging issues. We have been practising actively in this ever-changing sector since 1998 and have more than 70 lawyers worldwide who work on data privacy and cybersecurity issues in the United States, Europe and Asia and closely monitor the rapidly developing privacy laws around the world. Our global presence allows Sidley to offer our international clients both great depth of knowledge and experience, as well as 24/7 coverage, which can be important in time-critical situations.

Our lawyers have significant experience in addressing cutting-edge cybersecurity risks, both from a proactive counselling and compliance assessment perspective, as well as from a reactive incident response to internal reviews, government investigations and litigation. Based on our extensive experience with companies that need to protect sensitive corporate and personal data, we have developed a depth of knowledge about the rapidly evolving legal standards for cybersecurity across the United States and internationally.

Our lawyers remain on the leading edge of cyberlaw with innovative thought leadership. In addition to frequent speaking engagements, national media appearances, news alerts, webinars and publications, we keep clients abreast of emerging issues through our industry-leading blog, Data Matters, and by organising many industry privacy and cyber networks and roundtables, including Women in Privacy and dplegal.

With more than 1,900 lawyers and over 40 focused practice groups worldwide, Sidley provides best-in-class legal services to meet the needs of executive leaders and counsel.
