Privacy Litigation

“Kim & Chang is very responsive with high quality work products. In disputes practice,
it has accomplished the too good to be true result.”
– Asialaw Profiles 2017

Overview

Since the early 2000s, even before the issue of electronic personal data protection became a salient issue, Kim & Chang has specialized in this field.  With years of experience and know-how, we have successfully represented and advised many clients in high-profile cases involving personal data protection.

Large-scale leakages of personal data due to hacking, gross negligence/willful misconduct by employee(s), or both have become more frequent.  Companies may face serious consequences for such leakages, including not only administrative sanctions, but also criminal sanctions and civil liability for damages.  Lately, an increasing number of lawsuits are being filed against companies for damage compensation based on personal data leakages.  Criminal and civil complaints alleging personal data leakage have a negative impact on the reputation and credibility of accused companies, and in many instances, the amount of damage compensation that they may be ordered to pay could be significant.

Additional information regarding protection of personal data can be found on the Privacy & Data Security Practice’s webpage.
