Overview

Combining insight with ability, Andrew S. Pak counsels businesses on cybersecurity, data protection, risks, compliance, and litigation matters requiring deep technical knowledge.

Andrew draws on his experience as a former federal prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and as in-house counsel to a global Fortune 500 financial institution to advise clients on issues ranging from cybersecurity risk, incident response, and privacy to litigation, internal investigations, and regulatory matters. As a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), Andrew’s skillset includes both legal and practitioner-level knowledge and experience on cybersecurity issues.

Andrew is a former assistant U.S. attorney and cybercrime coordinator for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey, where he litigated malicious hacking cases and fraud-related matters. In this role, he prosecuted the largest computer hacking and securities fraud scheme charged to date, the largest credit card hacking case charged to date, and an international stock manipulation scam involving botnets.

Andrew also previously served as senior trial counsel at the DOJ Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section, where he prosecuted cybercrime matters, coordinated national DOJ litigation strategy relating to email search warrants, and worked on policy and legislative matters.

Andrew is the recipient of two Federal Law Enforcement Foundation “Prosecutor of the Year” awards and has received letters of recognition for his service from two directors of the U.S. Secret Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
