We are pleased to announce our placement of Jennifer Martin as a partner with Orrick in Silicon Valley. Ms. Martin joins Orrick from Covington where she led the West Coast Cybersecurity practice and was the co-leader of the firm’s IoT (Internet of Things) Initiative. Before joining Covington, Ms. Martin managed the Global Security Office’s Incident Response Team and was Lead Counsel for Internal Investigations for Symantec.
Her practice focuses on a range of cybersecurity projects for clients, from advising on cybersecurity program compliance on an industry-by-industry basis, to managing significant security incidents and providing cross-disciplinary incident response planning, to drafting commercial contract terms and requirements for purchasers and vendors as part of managing cybersecurity risk, and more frequently conducting cybersecurity due diligence in M&A transactions.
Ms. Martin has significant experience managing the response and investigation into sophisticated cybersecurity attacks impacting systems and information, including those attributable to nation-states, insider thefts of intellectual property, and data breaches of all sizes and significance. As a former federal prosecutor, including litigating a high-profile Economic Espionage Act case, she is also frequently involved in coordinating with law enforcement and government agencies in a range of cybersecurity matters.
