Caroline practices at the intersection of cybersecurity, data, government enforcement, and intellectual property. Her interdisciplinary expertise enables her to guide her clients through crises, respond to cybersecurity incidents, and manage enterprise risk strategically, effectively, and efficiently.
Caroline helps companies across diverse industries and verticals develop effective responses to cyberattacks and privacy incidents that deftly manage reputational, litigation, and financial risk. She is regularly engaged by clients to develop proactive security response programs, and when needed, design and conduct internal investigations to help determine root cause(s) and formulate strategies for organizations to enhance their cybersecurity program. Her extensive litigation and trial experience—including in the areas of criminal defense, Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), trade secret misappropriation, and IP—allows her to see around corners to identify and manage key legal and litigation risks, and proactively prepare her clients’ defense strategies against high-stakes litigation and government and regulatory enforcement investigations and actions.
