Our attorneys know insurance for cyber risks and data privacy issues inside and out, and have been at the forefront of insurance coverage for cyber risks and privacy events for years. We have litigated insurance coverage for claims and helped clients manage coverage for cyber risk since 2008, before large data breaches became frequent daily news headlines. We also have litigated insurance coverage for emerging technology claims since 2001.
Our attorneys have significant experience in helping clients obtain millions of dollars in insurance coverage for losses related to cyberattacks and cyber fraud. This has come from litigation, mediations, and strategic counseling that has resulted in coverage under cyber insurance, crime, errors and omissions, first-party property, kidnap, ransom and extortion, and general liability policies for cyberattack-related losses.
Many of the cyberattacks giving rise to the losses have been in the national news, and coverage disputes we have helped clients resolve have been featured countless times in insurance industry publications. Whether it’s phishing-based wire fraud, business email compromise, ransomware attacks or payment card cyberattacks, clients turn to us for our blend of technical knowledge, experience and perspective that longevity in this space has brought.
We also work with clients to obtain the best possible commercially available coverage to pay for costs and losses from cyber incidents. We provide strategic advice about offered policy terms and conditions. We conduct a coverage needs assessment, working closely with policyholders to determine their needs and, because of our experience with and focus on the technology behind cyberattacks, we often uncover nuances to their operations that deserve attention.
Companies large and small bring us in to help when coverage has been denied under their existing policies. We speak the language of insurance and work with clients to present details of their claim to situate them for a comprehensive resolution.
