Debevoise & Plimpton is bringing on Erez Liebermann, who was the co-chair of Linklaters’  U.S. data solutions, cyber and privacy group.

The move, announced Monday, adds more depth to Debevoise’s data strategy and security practice, an area that has become heavily competitive in Big Law. It’s also another reminder of the challenges facing Linklaters’ growth in the United States. Liebermann, based in New York, joined Linklaters in May 2021, when the firm launched a U.S. data and privacy group.
