HWG attorneys help communications providers and information storage companies deftly navigate government demands for information about users.
HWG’s interdisciplinary team includes former U.S. federal prosecutors, former Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) officials, and in-house lawyers. Our attorneys are seasoned in balancing the legal obligations and risks associated with receiving a government subpoena, warrant, FISA order, or other government demand for information about users.
We advise entities juggling competing obligations under non-U.S. data protection laws, such as the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and U.S. laws, such as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). We also help clients design Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) compliance programs and craft effective responses if a government steps outside of legal bounds to collect information.Read More+
