Few lawyers in the world have Miriam Wugmeister’s breadth and understanding of privacy and data security laws, obligations, and practices. In the words of her clients, she is “extremely practical and phenomenally smart. Just about one of the best privacy advisers there is” (Chambers USA).

Ms. Wugmeister has helped hundreds of clients respond to data security incidents, including several of the largest and most noteworthy of the past few years.

Ms. Wugmeister also works with dozens of companies to develop comprehensive customized incident response plans, train staff, conduct extensive table top exercises, and address key issues with Boards of Directors and executive management.

Ms. Wugmeister advises organizations on the planning and execution of complex global compliance efforts, assists in the negotiation of strategic deals, and defends regulatory and litigation matters relating to privacy and data security in the U.S. and internationally.
