Sidley has a dedicated group of lawyers focusing specifically on litigation involving the new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). 

Set to go into effect on January 1, 2020, the CCPA is the first United States law that will require businesses with a presence in California – even if they do not have offices or employees in California – to focus on user data and provide transparency in how businesses collect, share and use such data. Businesses that collect or use personal information, do business in California and meet certain thresholds (revenue or data collection) should know about the CCPA, risks for class action litigation and incentives to plaintiffs’ attorneys to bring suit in California. Sidley is working with clients to assess – and mitigate – litigation risks by putting in place the policies, procedures and protocols that comply with the CCPA. Enhancing our capabilities in this area of law, the firm’s Consumer Class Action practice, widely recognized by numerous industry publications for its notable strength in defending consumer class actions, mass tort litigation and class actions, launched a CCPA Litigation Task Force.

Sidley’s CCPA Litigation Task Force is fully prepared to defend our clients’ interests in CCPA litigation. We have compiled a highly experienced CCPA-focused litigation defense team that has handled many consumer class actions deftly, innovatively and efficiently. Our CCPA litigation defense team consistently delivers successful outcomes to businesses subject to consumer class action litigation in California. With a group of focused and successful CCPA defense lawyers, noted industry experience, and a wealth of knowledge in privacy issues, class action litigation and other related disciplines, Sidley is a trusted source for CCPA litigation advice.
