N&T’s extensive experience also includes investigating and litigating high profile privacy and data security cases. For example, N&T was counsel in the Sony data breach and hack perpetrated by North Korean operatives that allegedly exposed Sony employees’ social security numbers, private messages, and other sensitive private information. N&T has participated in similar investigations and claims against, e.g., financial institutions, retailers, and other businesses.
