I’m delighted today to focus on a key player in BakerHostetler’s Digital Assets and Data Management group. David Carney is an exceptional lawyer who is on the cutting edge of privacy litigation in the United States. His work on a series of high-profile matters over the past six years has established important parameters regarding plaintiff claims, damages, and the scope of litigation in this evolving area of law.
We’re very proud of his most recent accomplishment – being named a 2021 Law360 MVP in the category of Cybersecurity & Privacy. It’s a public acknowledgement of what we have known for years – David is a major force in privacy law.
In addition to being a great lawyer, it is a privilege and a pleasure to work with David. He’s a conscientious mentor, a generous team player, and a genuinely nice guy. One of David’s inspirations is his daughter Kate, who died in 2015 when she was 8 years old. David keeps her spirit alive in his heart by striving to treat colleagues on all sides of the bar with the decency and dignity that Kate would expect. And we know that Kate is smiling down on Dave with pride.
You can get to know a little more about David in the accompanying profile, published by Law360 as part of its recent spotlight on the 2021 national MVPs.
