Cooley has hired two partners from Norton Rose Fulbright to bolster its data protection offering in the US.
Norton Rose former US co-chairs of data protection, privacy and cybersecurity Boris Segalis and David Navetta are set to join the firm alongside former Dentons partner Anthony Jannotta, who is joining as a special counsel.
Both lawyers joined Norton Rose in 2014 from InfoLawGroup, a firm which Navetta founded. Prior to founding his firm, Navetta worked for over three years in New York as an assistant general counsel for American International Group’s eBusiness Risk Solutions Group. He is based in Colorado.
Segalis joined Navetta’s firm in 2010 as a partner from his own firm, Segalis PLLC. Prior to that, he was an associate at Hunton & Williams for over three years and an associate at legacy Dewey Ballantine for almost four years.
Segalis counsels clients, from startups to Fortune 100 companies, on a broad range of privacy, information security, cybersecurity and information management issues. His practice addresses all aspects of the information management life cycle, including its collection, use, storage, disclosure and destruction, as well as the protection of the information and infrastructure supporting the data. He is based in New York.
Jannotta, who is based in Washington DC, leads corporate responses to large-scale and complex national multistate investigations brought by state attorneys general. He focuses on navigating the legal, regulatory and legislative process across the country and has extensive experience in data breach, privacy, technology, consumer protection, healthcare fraud and antitrust matters.
“Cybersecurity and data privacy are board and C-suite level issues now, and the need for robust cyber and data protection capabilities has never been more acute,” said Cooley privacy, data protection and internet practice co-chair Michael Rhodes.
This is the latest team hire for Cooley since it took a team from Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati to boost its offices in New York and Washington DC offices last year. The team was led by partners Adam Dinow, Sacha Ross and Robert Sanchez.
