Portfolio Media Inc Law360
Senior Privacy Reporter
New York, NY, USA

Allison Grande is a senior privacy reporter for Law360, a legal newswire based in New York. Since joining Law360 in July 2009, she has written nearly 4,000 articles and analyses on litigation and policy developments in a variety of practice areas, ranging from intellectual property and banking to international trade and bankruptcy. She began covering privacy, data security and consumer protection issues on a full-time basis in 2011, when Law360 launched its Privacy and Consumer Protection newswire. She has produced numerous articles during the past year on the significance of the U.S. Supreme Court's May 2016 ruling in Spokeo v. Robins, which held that plaintiffs must allege a concrete injury to establish Article III standing for statutory privacy violations. These articles include an in-depth look at the deep divide that has emerged among district courts and some appellate courts around the country over whether statutory violations can ever meet the standing bar established by the Supreme Court. During her time at Law360, which is owned by LexisNexis, Allison has also tackled topics such as civil lawsuits and criminal charges that have stemmed from a data breach at Yahoo; the emergence of internet-connected devices that have raised privacy and security concerns, and trespass and intrusion claims that have stemmed from the rise of the popular Pokemon Go mobile game. Allison obtained her Master's degree from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and received her undergraduate degree from Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, NY.
