Data theft, Confidential Information & Trade Secrets, Investigations
A company's confidential data, whether a database of client information, key financial information or trade secrets, is one of its most valuable assets. It gives the company a competitive edge in the market. Yet its misappropriation and misuse can provide a competitor with a significant and unfair advantage. Confidential data can be extremely vulnerable to theft and misuse. Our team of data theft specialists has 15 years' experience advising on and litigating high profile data theft cases, and is made up of experts from our fraud litigation, white collar crime and employment groups.
Digital technology allows publication of sensitive or damaging information to the world at large, and this can often happen unnoticed. Once sensitive information has been picked up by the media or spread online, an immediate response is vital to minimise its potential damage.
But crisis management alone is not enough. We prepare strategy in advance, implement it swiftly and robustly when needed, and provide damage limitation advice during and after a crisis. We also have extensive experience of working with in-house teams to provide ongoing reputation management strategies.
