Practice Overview

Lockridge Grindal Nauen P.L.L.P. is one of the preeminent data breach law firms working at the forefront of data breach litigation in the United States. Our data breach clients are local, small financial institutions that have been injured by the failure of retailers to secure their customers’ data.  We also represent consumers and medical patients whose information is compromised when companies and insurance providers fail to secure their personal information, and government entities and others who need advice on cybersecurity issues and litigation defense.

When retailers, medical insurers, and other companies fail to use adequate cybersecurity protections for customer and client data, affected individuals may have the right to sue for damages and injunctive relief, such as business practice changes. Our team of seasoned legal professionals pursues data breach cases on behalf of individuals and financial institutions injured by negligent conduct. Litigation partners Richard A. Lockridge, Karen Hanson Riebel, Heidi M. Silton, and Kate M. Baxter-Kauf have successfully prosecuted data breach cases in federal and state courts across the country. LGN data breach lawyers have obtained millions of dollars in data breach lawsuit settlements for our clients over the past two decades.

Fourteen LGN attorneys were recognized among the top 5% of lawyers in Minnesota as Super Lawyers and Rising Stars for 2021, including all of our data breach litigation partners. Conference and seminar organizers throughout the country value our expertise, inviting several LGN lawyers to speak on data breach, privacy, and cybersecurity issues. We have been invited to speak to labor and union leaders, corporate general counsel’s offices, and at conferences for other practitioners and industry leaders. We vigorously support civil enforcement and open access to courts.
