Nathan is a go-to resource for HIPAA expertise, though his practice also includes a broader range of data privacy and security matters. Nathan has helped clients properly handle stolen medical records, inadvertently accessed medical records by a terminated employee, and HIPAA policies and procedures that required comprehensive rewrites. Nathan has also represented a Fortune 100 company in the management of two separate data breaches involving vendors or vendors’ subcontractors, including one that implicated HIPAA compliance issues. He is such a trusted expert in this area that he serves as McGuireWoods’ Privacy Officer, providing an overall strategy for the firm’s global HIPAA compliance, as well as ensuring the firm’s Business Services Agreements, training, and policies and procedures are compliant.
