Debevoise Lawyers Author Chapter in the Latin Lawyer Guide to Corporate Crises Management

9 February 2021

Debevoise partners Jeremy Feigelson and Andrew Levine and associates Christopher Ford, Anna Gressel, Stephanie Cipolla and Hilary Davidson have contributed a chapter to the newly published Latin Lawyer Guide to Corporate Crises Management entitled, “Data Privacy and Cybersecurity: Crisis Avoidance and Management Strategies.”

The chapter discusses the central role of communications in designing and implementing incident response plans in the areas of data privacy in cybersecurity. With the extraterritorial reach of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation and similar legislative efforts in other jurisdictions, privacy breaches can quickly balloon into a legal, as well as reputational, crisis, and the authors stress that compliance professionals across Latin America should be thinking about these risks.

Jeremy Feigelson is a litigation partner, Co-Chair of the firm’s Data Strategy & Security practice, and a member of the firm’s Intellectual Property and Media Group. He frequently represents clients in litigations and government investigations that involve the Internet and new technologies. His practice includes litigation and counseling on cybersecurity, data privacy, trademark, right of publicity, false advertising, copyright, and defamation matters.

Andrew Levine is a litigation partner who focuses his practice on white collar and regulatory defense, internal investigations and a broad range of complex commercial litigation. He regularly defends companies in criminal, civil and regulatory enforcement matters and has conducted numerous investigations throughout the world. Mr. Levine frequently advises companies on compliance matters, including with respect to the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and the assessment and management of risks presented by potential mergers, acquisitions and other transactions.
