Eric Levy is a senior attorney in Gardere's litigation practice group. He represents clients in complex commercial litigation, with a primary emphasis on privacy and data protection, technology and internet-related issues, and insurance coverage. He also has experience litigating personal injury and property damage suits, contract and lease disputes, collection claims, trademark and copyright actions, and eminent domain proceedings.

Although he has extensive experience in all facets of litigation and trial work, Eric also regularly handles transactional and compliance matters, particularly with respect to information privacy and security. In that regard, he has assisted clients in the negotiation and preparation of privacy policies, notices and other documentation designed to comply with both general privacy principles and sector-based laws and regulations, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). He also drafts contractual documentation designed to allocate data protection risks between the various parties involved in the gathering and use of personal information.

Eric is well-versed in incident investigation and breach response, including breach notification requirements in the United States and abroad, and generally assisting clients in staying ahead of cyber-security risks. He is also familiar with cyber-insurance policies and the various coverage issues that can arise under them.

Eric has received the Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP-US) designation from the International Association of Privacy Professionals (“IAPP”).

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
