Locke Lord's Privacy & Cybersecurity Group has a dedicated team of lawyers with industry-specific experience who utilize an interdisciplinary approach to help clients navigate cyber and privacy insurance matters.
The team partners with global insurance clients to consider policy wording and potential cyber and privacy exposures under stand-alone cyber policies or endorsements, as well as under a variety of first-party and third-party policies such as property, CGL, D&O, E&O, fidelity, and EPL. The team's experience includes product development, risk management, and coverage work involving claims analysis, claims monitoring, litigation, mediation and arbitration.
The team also supports our insurance clients with quickly evolving coverage issues. These include new issues arising from ever developing technologies and new or changing regulatory and statutory developments, as well as those issues often seen with many other kinds of risks. The team has keen insight into how different jurisdictions have ruled or may rule on coverage issues affecting cyber and privacy insurers. This comes from the team's familiarity with cyber and privacy exposures, its experience with cyber and privacy wordings and risks as well as many other types of policies and claims, and its participation in the Firm’s Privacy & Cybersecurity Group.
In addition, team members are selected or approved by insurers to advise insureds on incident response and in other data security matters (our Incident Response Team), and to defend insureds in litigation and other legal and regulatory proceedings (our Breach Litigation Team).
