Legal 500 US Awards 2015 - Winner - Data protection & privacyReed Smith LLP’s Information Technology, Privacy & Data Security Group has been named the “Data Protection and Privacy: 2015 Firm of the Year” by The Legal 500 United States.

Over the past decade, the group has developed into a think-tank for the firm’s clients, linking experienced cybersecurity and privacy professionals with veteran intellectual property litigators, top tier information governance advisors, technology contracting specialists, and others with a similarly data-oriented perspective. In the last two years alone, the group has bolstered its practice with the addition of seven leading attorneys in three U.S. markets. While the award recognizes work done domestically, much of the work done by the group in the United States leverages experience and talent of our international team, and includes U.S. lawyers supporting on global multinational projects.

Legal 500 describes its U.S. Awards for 2015 as “recognizing and rewarding the best in-house and private practice teams and individuals over the past 12 months.”  The organization selected this year’s elite legal practitioners based on comprehensive research into the U.S. legal market, including more than 50,000 interviews.
