Carol UmhoeferDLA Piper LLP (US)

DLA Piper LLP (US) fields a strong nationwide privacy and data security team, which brings together expertise in regulatory and compliance matters, transactional issues and cybersecurity response. It also benefits from the global reach of its international network. Washington DC-based Jim Halpert — who advises on compliance with transnational, federal and state privacy and security regulations, particularly in transactions — jointly leads the team alongside Andrew Serwin in the San Diego office, who joined the team from Morrison & Foerster LLP and brings with him a wealth of experience in data security incidents and privacy enforcement matters. Miami-based Carol Umhoefer is highlighted for her IT sector expertise, while Atlanta-based Anna Spencer is rated for her experience in the healthcare sector. The practice group has seen a number of recent personnel changes: cybercrime expert Edward McAndrew, who splits his time between the Wilmington and Washington DC offices, joined the team from Ballard Spahr LLP; and litigators Edward Totino and Perrie Weiner left for Baker McKenzie.
