Partner, Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath

Paul Luehr, CIPP/US, co-leads Faegre Drinker’s global Privacy, Cybersecurity, and Data Strategies practice and has spent over 25 years on the cutting edge of law and data issues. He pioneered early digital investigations and led the first internet team at the Federal Trade Commission and prosecuted hackers, fraudsters, and terrorists as a cybercrime prosecutor with the US Department of Justice. He then joined a global cybersecurity firm and became the “go-to” professional for companies facing some of the largest data breaches on record, including the Yahoo! incidents.

Today, Paul works with clients in retail, healthcare, insurance, and manufacturing on incident response, global privacy and security compliance, and M&A cyber due diligence. For the past three years, the Cybersecurity Docket has named Paul to its ‘Incident Response 30’ list, honoring the “nation’s best and brightest data-breach-response attorneys.” His insights have been featured on CBS, NBC, CNBC, MSNBC and BBC television, and in publications such as Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times.

Paul is graduate of Harvard University and the UCLA School of Law.
