Media, Technology and Cyber Liability

Coverage for media and technology risks is a fast-growing area, with new products being offered to address data breaches, cyber crimes, cloud computing and social media. We have experience with traditional media and technology errors and omissions policies, as well as a deep familiarity with new forms and endorsements applying specifically to cyber risks.

Our attorneys have counseled and represented insurers in connection with major disputes involving loss of private data, electronic publishing, errors in software implementation and the delivery of telecommunications services, consumer class actions, and regulatory investigations. Frequently, these claims involve multiple types of coverage and multiple insurers and insureds. Our extensive experience in complex insurance disputes has helped our clients successfully resolve even the most challenging matters.
