BatesCarey LLP attorneys have extensive experience representing insurers in cyber and privacy matters. As notice counsel for a number of nationwide cyber and privacy programs, our attorneys are often the first point of contact for companies that have experienced a privacy breach. We work with insurers and their insureds to develop an appropriate response to privacy breaches and assess the applicable coverage, including coverage for first party breach response, business interruption, and data restoration claims, as well as third party liability and regulatory actions.
Our attorneys handle first and third party claims arising out of privacy breaches of all sizes and across all industries, including healthcare, financial institutions, retail, and professional firms. We advise insurers on cyber and privacy breaches, and work with closely with forensic providers to ensure appropriate actions are taken when breaches occur. We also work with insurers to develop new cyber and privacy products, and routinely review existing insurance wordings to keep pace with the changing legal and technological landscape.
As attorneys with specialized knowledge in cyber and privacy matters, our attorneys also advise insurers on coverage issues pertaining to third party claims and regulatory actions arising out of the collection and use of data. Such claims range from invasion of privacy claims to alleged violations of state and federal legislation, including the California Medical Information Act, the FCRA, TCPA, and countless others.
In addition to representing cyber and privacy insurers with regard to privacy breaches and data collection and use matters, we also advise and represent CGL, E&O, and D&O insurers regarding such risks. Our attorneys have the breadth of experience across all product lines to fully assess coverage for cyber privacy matters.
