Jeff Boogay is a Partner at Mullen Coughlin. He assists organizations in both the preparation for, and response to, data privacy and security incidents, as well as regulatory inquiries. He has counseled thousands of organizations across all industries through data privacy and security investigations, data breach notification and ensuing regulatory investigations. 

After a data privacy and security incident has occurred, Jeff assists the victim organization in addressing crucial points of fact and law, including determining the nature and scope of the intrusion; identifying the affected individuals and types of information involved; determining what state, federal and international laws govern the organization’s notice of the incident; and preparing legally compliant notices to affected individuals and appropriate regulators, where required. 

Prior to joining Mullen Coughlin, Jeff worked for a large international law firm where he litigated complex civil cases that included allegations of violations of state unfair trade practice statutes. 

He is also a former Assistant District Attorney who worked closely with law enforcement and crime victims to investigate, prepare and litigate criminal cases. He draws on this experience to assist his clients.
