Litigation Practice - Cyber & Digital Litigation

“Kamal’s experience leading some of the most sophisticated cybet cases in the country will be an asset to clients trying to navigate the wide spectrum of legal challenges that cyber threats present” – John Floyd

Everyday, cyber-criminals, foreign governments, and other opportunistic actors target American businesses, law firms, municipal governments, and even individuals with sophisticated cyber attacks.  Whether it’s company insiders, the latest malware strain, online extortion, or a foreign-based threat actor, cyber threats continue to grow.   Our Cyber & Digital Litigation practice includes a former U.S. Department of Justice cybercrime prosecutor and Deputy Chief of the Cyber and Intellectual Property Crime Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, seasoned litigators with experience in highly-technical complex litigation, and attorneys well-versed in crisis response. We react to crises quickly, effectively manage highly-technical forensic investigations, and interface with federal and state regulators while protecting the client’s business and reputation.
