Jajko’s practice will focus on cyber incident response and advising clients on data security and privacy legal issues, including regulatory compliance. He is part of FMG’s 24/7 emergency response team, which handles incidents like data breaches, ransomware attacks, wire transfer fraud, and extortion demands. He will also handle data security and privacy litigation, including class-action data-breach cases, technology errors and omissions claims, and enforcement actions and investigations by government regulators, the firm said.

“Nick is a very experienced cyber attorney who adds valuable depth and capability to our growing data security, privacy and technology practice,” said FMG managing partner Ben Mathis. “He also brings us trial and litigation experience, as our team continues its dramatic growth in both incident response and handling significant class action and tech E&O claims.”
