Data Breach and Privacy Lawsuits

When a company fails to keep consumers’ information private, class action lawsuits provide a way for those affected to take action. In the last few years, we have seen countless class action lawsuits filed over data breaches in which information as sensitive as Social Security numbers was leaked, as well as over websites secretly sending users’ online activity to third parties and companies unlawfully collecting fingerprints and other unique identifiers. We expect this trend only to grow in the future.

Class action lawsuits serve not only to provide compensation to those who had their information exposed; they can also force the company being sued to improve its security to help ensure the breach or other privacy violation never occurs again.

Below, you will find our open investigations related to data breaches, improper collection and use of consumers’ personal information, and more.
