Debevoise & Plimpton LLP partners Jeremy Feigelson and Andrew Levine, counsel Johanna Skrzypczyk and associates Jacqueline Brehmer, Michael Bloom, Hilary Davidson and Mengyi Xu have contributed a chapter to Latin Lawyer’s “Guide to Managing a Corporate Crisis” entitled “Data Privacy and Cybersecurity: Crisis Avoidance and Management Strategies.”
