Partner, Co-Chair of Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice

Lewis Brisbois

Kamran is a partner in the Consumer Financial Services practice and is a member of the Cybersecurity, Information Governance + Privacy Practice Group. He is CIPP/US, CIPP/E, and CIPT certified.

Kamran focuses his practice on guiding his clients through the incident response process. This process includes directing forensic investigations, developing post-incident response notification plans, and responding to regulatory investigations.

For each data incident, Kamran seeks to answer three main questions for his clients: (1) how the incident occurred; (2) how best to comply with any legal obligations the incident created; and (3) how to reduce the likelihood of an incident happening again. Kamran also helps his clients assert or defend against claims in state and federal litigation resulting from data security incidents.

In his response work, Kamran strives to minimize disruption to his clients, preserve their customer relationships, and reduce the likelihood and consequences of litigation and regulatory investigations.

As part of his security incident response work, Kamran provides his clients with practical advice on proactive data security practices, including designing pre-incident response plans and information governance programs.

Apart from incident responses, Kamran also helps clients with pre-incident planning, including developing incident response plans and modifying vendor agreements to clarify each parties’ obligations should an incident occur. As a Certified Information Privacy Professional for the U.S. and Europe (CIPP/US/E) and a Certified Privacy Information Technologist (CIPT), Kamran can also counsel companies about information governance and help them comply with data protection laws.

Armed with decades plus experience as a litigator, Kamran provides his clients with a unique perspective on data privacy and protection issues. He brings a pragmatic problem-solving approach to his incident response work, an approach that he developed and honed through years of resolving high-stakes litigation disputes on behalf of his clients. Because of his litigation experience, Kamran’s skill set includes understanding and anticipating drafting ambiguities and oversights that spawn litigation, a skill set that he uses to his clients’ benefit when counseling them on compliance.
