Dinsmore & Shohl LLP Expands Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Services with New Attorney Team

Responding to the growing demands of national business clients, Dinsmore & Shohl LLP, a leading legal firm, is significantly enhancing its cybersecurity and data privacy services. The firm has announced the addition of a five-attorney team based in the Cleveland region, specializing in these crucial areas. The team is led by Craig Horbus, a seasoned expert with two decades of experience in domestic and international regulatory compliance, technical contracting, and mergers and acquisitions.

Craig Horbus on the Expansion and Its Opportunities

Craig Horbus expressed enthusiasm about the expansion: “The idea of having offices coast to coast is extremely exciting. When you need boots on the ground, it’s nice to be able to call on colleagues who can close the geographic gap to get things done for clients in a variety of practice areas. I look forward to rolling up my sleeves and seizing these opportunities.”

Addressing the Regulatory Landscape and Client Preparedness

In today’s digital era, cybersecurity and data privacy are crucial for risk management, brand protection, and corporate responsibility. Craig highlighted the complexity of the regulatory landscape: “The challenge on the regulatory landscape is that we have 50 states in the U.S., in addition to countries all over the world, that have their own complicated regulatory policies. It’s important to have access to counsel wherever you need it, and Dinsmore is doubling down on that expertise so that if systems are compromised, our clients are prepared and we can help them mitigate the damage.”

Dinsmore’s Strategic Growth and National Presence

Dinsmore’s managing partner, Joshua Lorentz, spoke about the firm's strategic growth: “This is an incredible opportunity for Dinsmore to grow its scale nationally and provide additional bench strength in an area that is paramount to clients. Generative AI, ransomware, software supply chain security and protecting cloud-based infrastructure are concerns that keep our clients up at night. Broadening our cybersecurity and data privacy bench ensures we can be proactive in our game plans.”

Continued Expansion and Attracting Top Talent

Over the past year, Dinsmore has seen accelerated growth, attracting top talent nationwide, drawn to the firm’s commitment to autonomy, transparency, and a collaborative culture. Jim Dimitrijevs, Cleveland’s office managing partner, stated, “The robust practice of these attorneys will enhance significantly the existing cybersecurity and data privacy work in our office and throughout Dinsmore. This continues our ongoing efforts to expand Dinsmore’s presence in Northeast Ohio.”

Nationwide Growth and New Offices

The firm continues its upward trajectory, having recently opened its first office in Texas and expanding its footprint in Florida with substantial attorney teams in Orlando and Miami.

This expansion by Dinsmore & Shohl LLP underscores the firm's dedication to staying at the forefront of cybersecurity and data privacy, ensuring their clients are well-equipped to navigate the complexities of today's digital landscape.
