Alston & Bird LLP
Jim’s practice involves board-level and enterprise-wide issues at the intersection of global cybersecurity, privacy, technology and data initiatives. Given his decades-long experience in the technology space, Jim was one of the first lawyers in the United States to focus on the criticality of privacy and data management issues for global corporations. This immersion in technology and data matters motivated Jim to found both the firm’s Privacy & Security task force and the firm’s Cybersecurity Preparedness & Response Team, well before other firms realized these issues faced their clients. Today, Jim and these teams assist multinational clients from a wide array of industries with a full spectrum of cyber, privacy and technology issues, adversarial matters and transactions, including everything from preparing companies and their boards for cybersecurity risks, responding to network intrusion and other security incidents, collecting, storing, processing and monetizing personal and corporate data around the globe, and acquiring technology and services in today’s networked world.
