Peter Swire discusses his recent move to Alston & Bird as senior counsel in the firm’s Privacy & Security Practice.
“Companies today are often facing complex challenges with their data,” he said. “I have experience writing financial and medical privacy rules and experience on Internet privacy and many cybersecurity matters, and I believe we can be very helpful for the issues that combine law, technology and privacy.”
Swire noted that the firm’s experience in data breaches and privacy policies lured him to his new position.
“I felt that I could give more visibility to a quality practice that already exists, and also now is a great time to be helping clients with privacy matters,” he said. “Companies are facing an unprecedented level of challenges on these issues, and I enjoy using my expertise to help solve practical problems.”
