Chicago Partner Jena Valdetero was quoted April 19 by Law360 regarding ways that general counsel can stave off future data breach litigation. Valdetero, who is co-leader of Bryan Cave’s Data Breach Response Team, explained the importance of having a lawyer on a company’s data breach response team. “Bring in the law department, if you have one, or outside breach counsel who’s experienced with this type of work because you’ll want to conduct your investigation to the extent possible under attorney-client privilege,” Valdetero says. The article also quoted Bryan Cave’s 2016 Data Breach Litigation Report, authored by Boulder Partner David Zetoony, Chicago Associate Joy Anderson and Valdetero.
