Hinshaw's Professional Liability Practice attorneys have a growing practice in representing financial institutions, internet retailers and other companies that face exposure as a result of data breaches in their online business platforms. Among others, matters we have handled include those arising out of business interruption losses; compromise of internet merchant payment systems and online banking platforms; and customer liability claims for losses associated with wire fraud, ACH debit fraud and losses governed by the Electronic Funds Transfer Act. We have also represented companies faced with claims based on compromise of private consumer financial information through web-based hacking and spoofing schemes or other criminal conduct. We have assisted clients whose customers have been victimized by telephone and internet cramming ploys and similar schemes to pirate and misuse credit card and other information exchanged by merchants and customers via the internet.
