Intellectual Property, Cybersecurity, and Data Privacy

Intellectual Property, Cybersecurity, and Data Privacy

Businesses of every size collect and maintain data that can be deemed personal information, including customer data such as account records, credit card information, contact information, and purchasing history, and employee data such as payroll files, direct payroll account bank information, Social Security numbers, and home addresses. Shingler Lewis helps clients navigate the risks inherent in collection, transmission, and maintenance of sensitive customer, employee, and business data, and is committed to developing NIST framework-compliant cybersecurity plans for risk management, incident response, and remediation.

In addition to the privacy concerns inherent in the operation of any business, some businesses also collect proprietary and sensitive business information such as financial records, marketing plans, and product designs. Shingler Lewis is experienced in representing clients in litigation involving allegations of trademark infringement, disclosure of trade secrets, and other claims arising under the Lanham Act and unfair trade practices laws.  The knowledge we have gained from counseling clients on protection of their intellectual property permits Shingler Lewis to represent clients effectively and efficiently, whether through negotiation and settlement or a jury trial.  When selected as local counsel, our insights into Georgia‚Äôs state and federal courts make us valuable partners in handling intellectual property disputes.
