Brattle has deep experience in assisting clients with cybersecurity and data privacy issues in the healthcare sector. Based on the unique factors affecting the situation, our experts select the appropriate methods to assess damages associated with data breach and other privacy violations.

The methods used by our experts include using conjoint analysis and other survey methods to determine the impact of disclosures about a firm’s data security issues on consumer demand, as well as analyses of the value that third parties place on misappropriated data.


Below is a list of representative engagements for our Data Privacy Disputes practice.

Assessment of damages arising from healthcare data breach

A Brattle team worked on behalf of the plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit related to a high-profile breach of Premera Blue Cross’s healthcare data. We conducted numerous analyses and prepared reports explaining how to quantify the damage inflicted on the individuals whose personal data was misappropriated. Using a novel approach, we demonstrated how to use data related to dark web sales of personal information to objectively measure consumer losses from the breach.
