Klein helps clients protect their interests through preventative measures and, when necessary, strategic and effective litigation. Klein has extensive experience representing clients on a wide range of complex commercial litigation in both federal and state courts and before institutional and ad hoc arbitral tribunals.  Klein routinely provides counseling and litigation services to large businesses across a range of industries, including banking, financial services, pharmaceutical, commercial products/equipment, retail, technology, and telecommunications.  In addition to his litigation practice, Klein regularly acts as cybersecurity counsel to his clients.  Understanding the growing risks that even the most tech-savvy companies face, Klein frequently advises companies across a broad range of industries on data protection and privacy.  He has experience crafting privacy policies and protecting companies both before a data breach by developing a thorough, yet efficient, cyber security incident response plan narrowly tailored to the client’s industry and after a data breach investigating incidents, formulating notifications, and coordinating with law enforcement.
