Maintaining the privacy and security of sensitive information and valuable data is one of the most challenging tasks facing private and public sector organizations today. Fast-changing technology, increasingly aggressive hackers, shifting customer attitudes, intense media scrutiny, new laws and regulations, and evolving organizational models combine to make privacy and data security a top priority for organizations both large and small.
Drummond Woodsum’s Privacy and Data Security attorneys comprise a multidisciplinary team with extensive experience in legal specialties such as corporate, school, intellectual property, financial services, employment, technology transactions, and litigation. The team helps clients at every step of the data life cycle, from developing and implementing privacy policies and procedures to representing clients in transactional matters and litigation.
Because our Privacy and Data Security team offers a mix of public and private-sector experience, we can provide our clients with well-informed advice regarding how to understand and comply with the various laws and standards that regulate the collection, use, sharing, and protection of various types of data. By working with us, our clients show their customers, constituents, employees, and others that they are not only complying with the laws that apply to them, but that they are also genuinely concerned about the privacy and security of the information that they touch.
Drummond Woodsum provides practical and thoughtful legal and strategic counseling to clients by employing a multipronged approach. We understand that advising and representing private and public sector organizations in sensitive information and data-related matters involves integrating substantive legal advice, detailed knowledge of an organization’s objectives, familiarity with state and federal law as well as the government's priorities, processes, and approaches, and an understanding of consumers’ attitudes toward and concerns about their data.
Areas of Concentration
We would like to hear from you, but please understand that we cannot represent you until we resolve conflicts of interest that may exist and agree to the terms of representation. Also, we cannot treat unsolicited information as confidential. Accordingly, please do not send us any information about any matter that may involve you until we send you a written confirmation that we represent you.
The best way for you to initiate a possible representation is to call us at either our Maine office (207-772-1941) or our New Hampshire office (603-433-3317). We will put you in touch with a lawyer suited to handle the general nature of your matter, and that lawyer will take you through our conflict of interest procedure. When you receive an engagement letter from that lawyer, you will be our client, and we may exchange information freely.
By clicking "continue", you agree that we may review any information you transmit to us. You recognize that transmission of such information is not solicited by us through this website, and does not initiate a prospective attorney client relationship, since, among other things, there is no reasonable basis to believe a confidential relationship may be formed by unsolicited email from a party we have not identified. Our review of your information transmitted in this manner, even if you submitted it in a good faith effort to retain us, and, further, even if it is designated as confidential, does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could and will be used against you.
