Miriam WugmeisterMorrison & Foerster LLP

Fielding ‘talented attorneys specializing in a diverse array of privacy sub-specialties across numerous jurisdictions‘, Morrison & Foerster LLP‘s privacy and data security practice is highlighted by clients as ‘a top-tier one-stop shop‘. New York-based Miriam Wugmeister (‘an incredible command of the law‘) heads the practice group, which was recently strengthened by the addition of Kristen Mathews in New York. Mathews joined from Proskauer Rose LLP, alongside associate Tiffany Quach, and handles a range of complex privacy and cybersecurity issues, with particular expertise in the financial services and technology industries. Other names to note include Julie O’Neill, in Boston, who defends clients in enforcement actions brought by the FTC and non-US data protection authorities; ‘exceptional‘ Washington-DC cybersecurity expert John Carlin, who boasts ‘deep and diverse government experience‘; and Christine Lyon in Palo Alto who is most active in the technology sector. Recently promoted of counsel Melissa Crespo, in Washington DC, and ‘talented‘ associate Mary Race in Palo Alto have experience advising on issues relating to the HIPPA and CCPA, respectively.
