Saad Gul focuses his practice on privacy and information security.He advises clients on a wide range of privacy, data security, and cyber liability issues, including risk management plans, regulatory compliance, cloud computing implications, and breach obligations. In advising his clients on these issues, he often draws on his technical background and prior career as an IT consultant.

In addition to his privacy practice, Saad also represents clients in complex commercial litigation, regulatory disputes, and antitrust matters. He has handled high-profile litigation in state and federal appellate courts across the country, including in the United States Supreme Court.

Saad recently led a team in filing an amicus brief before the Supreme Court of the United States on behalf of five European business organizations that represent the interests of several million commercial enterprises spanning the globe. The case, U.S. v. Microsoft, could change how businesses interact over the internet by impacting virtually every cross-border data transfer and setting critical precedent.
