Corporate Law

Our experience with Whiteford, Taylor & Preston is directly with David Cahn. Mr. Cahn worked with us on our franchising efforts. He was truly outstanding through the process. After agreeing on a price upfront with clear terms and timelines we spent the next few months working closely with him. He was professional but also caring in the sense that understood our goals, made himself available for any of our questions and took the time to speak on phone with us numerous times for what added up to many hours. He was accommodating to any of our revisions and met all of our goals. Through this process his work was top-notch. I not only am glad to have worked with him and his firm, but also am looking forward to continue to work with him on all the needs we have on the franchising avenue of our business.

Vanessa Badillo Percona, LLC

Privacy and Data Security Law

I was introduced to Whiteford, Taylor & Preston in 2010 and began working with their cyber practice team in 2011-2012. I found them to be strong client advocates who delved into the client’s problems and worked to find solutions. As cyber risk continued to evolve, I found that they worked to stay on top of emerging issues and created tools and processes that could be utilized to help clients identify and minimize their cyber risk. They clearly understood that insurance coverage was a vehicle that could be used to recover financially when all risk mitigation failed, that securing an insurance policy was not the end game, and that all cyber policies are not alike. The firm promoted the concept of risk resiliency long before it became a more common theme in the cyber world. In particular, the practice leaders Keith Moulsdale and Howard Feldman are down to earth, excellent communicators, and effective at what they do both before and then after a breach occurs. The finest compliment that I can give them is that I have utmost confidence that they will take excellent care of any client that I refer to them.
