Jim advises all types of companies on the myriad legal concerns surrounding confidential information and how such information is stored, transmitted, and used.

Named a Next Generation Lawyer in Cyber Law by Legal 500, Jim draws on his years of experience handling major data breach incidents to counsel clients through every step of cyber and information security incidents, including notification, reporting, and all associated state,  federal and global regulatory requirements.

Jim helps clients respond to regulatory inquiries, investigations, and enforcement actions related to privacy, information security, or cybersecurity issues. In addition to his extensive work with financial institutions and fintech companies, Jim coordinates with a broad range of financial institutions, including banks, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)-regulated entities, mortgage lenders or servicers, or service providers to financial institutions in meeting bank-level security expectations of regulators or business partners.

A recognized thought leader in the fields of cybersecurity and privacy, Jim has presented on a variety of in-the-news cybersecurity topics for industry organizations and associations, including the RSA Conference, the International Association of Privacy Professionals, the ABA and the Mortgage Bankers Association. He was named a Fellow of Information Privacy and holds CIPP/US and CIPT certifications from the International Association of Privacy Professionals.
