Jim was one of the first lawyers in the United States to focus on the criticality of privacy and data management issues for global corporations. This immersion in technology and data matters motivated Jim to found both the Privacy & Data Security task force and the Cybersecurity Preparedness & Response Team, well before other firms realized these issues faced their clients.

This includes everything from preparing companies and their boards for cybersecurity risks, responding to network intrusion and other security incidents, collecting, storing, processing, and monetizing personal and corporate data around the globe, and acquiring technology and services in today’s networked world.
