Mullen Coughlin is proud to announce that Partner Amanda Harvey has been selected as a 2021 Texas “Super Lawyer” in the Technology Transactions practice area by Super Lawyers. The annual “Super Lawyer” selection is based off an evaluation of 12 indicators, including peer recognition and professional achievement in legal practice. This is Amanda’s first time being selected as a “Super Lawyer,” having been named a “Rising Star” in 2010 and 2017-2019.
Amanda joined Mullen Coughlin in January 2020 from a full-service, Dallas, TX-based law firm. Amanda now focuses her practice on providing organizations of all sizes and from every industry sector in first-party breach response and third-party privacy defense legal services. She has counseled hundreds of clients in investigating and responding to an event compromising information and systems security, working closely with client resources, third-party forensic consulting experts and law enforcement to identify the nature and scope of a compromise. She advises clients on their legal notice and compliance responsibilities required by state, federal and international law, as well as those stemming from industry-specific standards, ethical obligations and by contract.
In addition, Amanda also represents these companies in single-plaintiff and class action litigation stemming from data privacy and cybersecurity incidents. Her experience of over a decade of handling complex litigation has prepared her to successfully litigate matters within the designated timeframe and budget, oftentimes providing innovative legal strategies to negotiate disputes with minimal disruption to the organization’s business and reputation.
