Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP Partner Lisa Sotto was recently selected as a winner of the Lexology Client Choice Awards 2022. Established in 2005, Client Choice recognizes those law firms and partners around the world that stand apart for the excellent client care they provide and the quality of their service.

The criteria for this recognition focus on an ability to add real value to clients' business above and beyond the other players in the market. Clients are asked to rate individual lawyers and law firms on the following client service criteria: quality of legal advice, commercial awareness, industry knowledge, strategic thinking, billing transparency, tailored fee structures, value for money, responsiveness, effective communication, clarity of documentation, sharing of expertise, appropriate staffing, project management, use of technology, loyalty and ethics. 

A longtime “leading lawyer” in global privacy and cybersecurity law, Sotto has dedicated her career to promoting sound global data privacy and security practices. She chairs the firm’s privacy and cybersecurity practice and is the managing partner of the firm’s New York office. In addition to heading the firm’s privacy and cybersecurity team, in 2001, Sotto co-founded the Centre for Information Policy Leadership, a think tank within the firm that collaborates with industry leaders, policymakers and regulators to develop global solutions and best practices for data privacy and responsible data use.

Sotto is so well respected in matters of cybersecurity and privacy that governments and lawmakers around the world seek her counsel in regulating the space. Clients have praised her as “the queen of breach,” “the high priestess of privacy’” and “by far the country’s gold standard for privacy and cybersecurity matters.”
