Few lawyers in the world have Miriam Wugmeister's breadth and understanding of privacy and data security laws, obligations, and practices. In the words of her clients, she is “extremely practical and phenomenally smart. Just about one of the best privacy advisers there is” (Chambers USA 2011). Co-Chair of Morrison & Foerster’s market-leading Global Privacy and Data Security Group and ranked among the top in the profession by all major directories, Miram is regularly called upon by some of the world’s largest and most complex multinational organizations to confront their most difficult United States and international privacy challenges. She develops cutting-edge solutions for clients that marry legal compliance with business realities. 

Miriam advises organizations on the planning and execution of complex global compliance efforts, assists in the negotiation of strategic deals, and defends regulatory and litigation matters relating to privacy and data security in the United States and internationally. She regularly provides advice on data security breach issues; the global collection, use, sharing of employee, customer, vendor, and consumer personal information; ediscovery and monitoring conflicts; social media issues; and cloud computing deals, as well as on developing data security policies and procedures and cybersecurity preparedness and response plans.
