Ronald I. Raether is known as the interpreter between businesses and information technology. This experience allows him to bring a fresh and creative perspective to data compliance issues with the knowledge and historical perspective of an industry veteran.
Ron Raether leads the Cybersecurity, Information Governance and Privacy practice group at Troutman Sanders, and is a partner in the firm’s Financial Services Litigation group. Ron has assisted companies in navigating federal and state privacy laws for over twenty years.
His understanding of technology led him to be involved in legal issues that cross normal law firm boundaries, including experience with data security, data privacy, patent, antitrust, and licensing and contracts.
His involvement in seminal data compliance and data use cases has helped define current standards in several areas of the law. He assisted one of the first companies required to provide notice of a data breach and has since successfully defended companies in over 100 class actions.
Even as regulators fight to broaden their authority and extend the boundaries of existing statutory schemes like the FCRA to cover data analytics and usage, Ron has adapted his practice to address this unique and shifting business/technology concern.
Ron has represented companies in hundreds of individual FCRA cases involving CRAs, resellers, furnishers, users, and public record vendors and has developed a reputation for assisting companies not traditionally viewed as subject to the FCRA. Ron also has litigated cases involving the DPPA, VPPA, TCPA and other federal and state statutory schemes which regulate the use or security of data.
Balancing privacy, cyber security and business functionality, Ron’s approach to data governance is uniquely designed with the industry in mind as it adapts to the ever-evolving technological and legal landscape.
As a thought leader on these issues, Ron regularly speaks nationally and publishes frequently on cutting-edge compliance developments. Ron is also a Certified Information Privacy Professional.
