Stueve Siegel Hanson is an industry-leader in data breach and cyber security litigation. SSH attorneys have prosecuted cases involving the largest data breaches in U.S. history, securing millions of dollars for affected consumers.
When Target suffered a major data breach in 2013, partner Norman Siegel was selected for the leadership team appointed to represent millions of customers who had their credit and debit cards compromised. He helped secure a settlement providing for monetary relief of $10 million to consumers nationwide and injunctive relief requiring Target to significantly improve its data security practices. The settlement was recognized by Missouri Lawyers Weekly as one of the largest out-of-state settlements in 2015.
In 2014, The Home Depot suffered a massive data breach that compromised the payment card data and email addresses of more than 60 million U.S. customers. SSH attorneys were appointed as lead counsel and fought vigorously on behalf of the class, ultimately securing a settlement that created a $13 million cash fund for customers, provided 18 months of identity theft monitoring services, and required Home Depot to significantly upgrade its data security practices. The presiding judge called the settlement an “exceptional result” and observed that it “appears to be the most comprehensive settlement achieved in large-scale data breach litigation.”
As one of the leading data breach and cybersecurity firms in the country, Stueve Siegel Hanson attorneys regularly lecture and publish articles concerning cutting-edge issues in this emerging legal field. SSH attorneys are actively involved in pending litigation against Anthem, Inc., the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the National Board of Examiners in Optometry, and other private businesses and institutions of higher learning for breaches of their data security.
