Crowell & Moring’s Gabriel M. Ramsey Named Top Cyber Lawyer by the Daily Journal

San Francisco – January 29, 2019: The Daily Journal has named Gabriel M. Ramsey a 2019 Top Cyber Lawyer. The award recognizes 15 attorneys at the cutting edge of cybersecurity who advise companies on best practices and on navigating legal and regulatory mandates on privacy and data security.

The Daily Journal highlighted Ramsey’s development of cybercrime deterrence plans for his clients. Most notably, he counseled Microsoft Corp. when a foreign hacking group called “Strontium” or “Fancy Bear”—believed to be associated with Russia’s military intelligence agency, the GRU—attacked the company and its political, government, and defense customers. By navigating the federal hacking, trademark, and state laws, Ramsey enabled Microsoft to assist victims in mitigating the threat and avoid being infected by new attacks.

Ramsey, a partner in the firm’s Litigation, Intellectual Property, and Privacy & Cybersecurity groups, told the Daily Journal that his practice is litigation focused, which goes hand in hand with breach deterrence and enforcement. “My role often is to identify actors and then use legal tools to hold them accountable. Part of the role is to be an investigator, and that part is fascinating,” Ramsey said.
