Litigation Services


Sometimes the end of the Cyber Attack is only the beginning of Your Problems

In most cases, once IT finishes its job, you’ve recovered from whatever problems arose out of your lost time.

Unfortunately, some situations require more than just managing the technical side of an attack. At this point, you need a law firm that has the skills and experience to represent your interests. The Law Offices of Brian C. Focht stand ready to be your advocate, no matter the circumstances. We will help you:

In regulatory investigations and proceedings

If your business operates in an industry subject to state and/or federal regulation, one of the most frightening prospects is facing a team of regulators sifting through your files, just looking for a reason to penalize you.

Just as if this was an investigation by criminal law enforcement, you should always make sure you have effective legal representation standing at your side in any investigation like this.

We stand ready to advise you during any regulatory investigation and represent you in front of any administrative hearing or prosecution. We will aggressively represent you and your business, and seek the fastest, most favorable resolution of any investigation.

Against lawsuits and litigation

When your business is the victim of a cyberattack, your customers and clients can easily become victims themselves. Just like you, they’re frustrated and angry, especially when the attack resulted in financial loss or identity theft.

Unfortunately, your business might be the only place they have to look for compensation. While it certainly is understandable, that doesn’t make it right.

We have the skills and experience necessary to defend you against litigation of any type. Having litigated matters in state and federal court, as well as in numerous different arbitration settings, we are ready to defend your business against all threats of litigation.

In claims – including lawsuits – against third parties

Cyberattacks have the potential to decimate a business, leaving inaccessible data, shattered confidence, and massive financial losses in their wake.

If someone is responsible for the damage done to your business, you need a law firm capable of pursuing every potential right you have against them in order to help repair the damage.

The Law Offices of Brian C. Focht has the litigation experience and skills, combined with the cybersecurity knowledge, to be that law firm. We will aggressively pursue your rights against hackers, nation states, or even your own vendors if they bear some responsibility for the damage suffered by your business.

Filing, pursuing, and – if necessary – litigating insurance claims

We all have similar opinions of how insurance companies work: when asked to pay out on a claim, they will usually do everything possible to minimize the amount.

As an attorney who has worked with insurance companies my entire career, I understand this – it’s their job.

However, that means you need someone pursuing your claims who can ensure you get everything you’re entitled to out of your insurance policy.

At the Law Offices of Brian C. Focht, we routinely work with – and for – insurance companies. That experience is critical in understanding exactly what needs to be done secure every cent you’re entitled to.

We will work hard on your behalf, to protect you and your business, and keeping the insurance companies honest, even if doing so means pursuing your rights in court.
