Erin Bolan Hines

Shook Hardy & Bacon LLP

Erin Bolan Hines concentrates her practice in business litigation, class action and complex litigation, and privacy and data security. She also provides counsel to clients on employment-related matters.

Erin focuses on the long-term goals of her clients, and brings a practical approach to work with private and public entities and individuals.

Her practice in privacy and data security includes helping clients deal with the complicated and rapidly changing technical and legal landscapes governing the collection, use, storage and disposal of sensitive corporate and consumer information.

As a member of Shook’s Privacy and Data Security group, Erin can provide compliance counseling.

During the past two years, Erin’s practice has focused on class action defense and compliance under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) litigation, including representation of both employers and timekeeping technology providers.

In her pro bono work, Erin has represented clients seeking asylum status under the Violence Against Women Act and has obtained legal status for several women faced with deportation, which would have put their children in the custody of their abusers.

Before joining Shook, Erin was of counsel with BakerHostetler in Chicago.
