Biography

Fernando M. Pinguelo, a trial lawyer and Chair of the firm's Cyber Security & Data Protection Group, devotes his practice to complex litigation with an emphasis on business disputes, cyber security, media and employment matters.

A former prosecutor, Fernando is experienced in all facets of litigation (trial, mediation, arbitration, and appellate) in both federal and state courts. He handles a broad spectrum of disputes including business torts, data breaches, misappropriation of trade secrets, copyright infringement, fraud, breach of non-compete covenants, and discrimination.

A leader in the emerging areas of cyber law and electronic discovery, Fernando works closely with business executives, in-house counsel, and HR and IT managers to develop strategies for managing business and legal issues relating to electronic data. He focuses client attention on preventing claims and pursues strategies that enhance a client's ability to manage data- essential precautions because of the financial and public relations fallout that often results from high-profile data breaches. And when a rapidly evolving crisis or emergency hits, Fernando mobilizes his interdisciplinary team of professionals and implements a response strategy to mitigate damages. Fernando's active involvement with Meritas, a worldwide affiliation of independent law firms across the U.S. and in 70 other countries, enables him to provide clients with services outside our jurisdictions.
