Washington, D.C. based law firm, Zwillinger Genetski LLP, is happy to announce the addition of Jennifer S. Granick, formerly Civil Liberties Director at the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Executive Director of Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society and Cyberlaw Clinic.

“Adding such an experienced San Francisco-based lawyer will enable us to provide more immediate hands-on service to our west coast clients,” co-founding partner Christian Genetski said. “We created the firm to serve clients that do business in cutting-edge areas of the Web and need sophisticated and experienced Internet lawyers. Many of our clients are in California, and Jennifer will help us offer more direct assistance to those companies.”

Jennifer Granick was EFF’s Civil Liberties Director from September 2007 to present. Before EFF, Granick was Executive Director of the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School, where she continues to teach Internet business and computer crime law courses. Her practice has focused on computer crime and security, electronic surveillance, consumer privacy and technology regulation under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Before teaching at Stanford, Jennifer spent almost a decade practicing criminal defense law in California.

“We’re very excited that Jennifer is joining us,” said Marc Zwillinger, co-founding partner of Zwillinger Genetski. “Her practical knowledge, wealth of experience in technology issues and public interest background are a welcome complement to the abilities of our other great lawyers.”

Zwillinger Genetski now has eight attorneys in three locations, D.C., Chicago and San Francisco. Rather than adhere strictly to the traditional hourly rate, the firm regularly employs alternative fee arrangements such as success fees, flat project fees, and monthly retainers to service more than 40 clients in the Internet space.

Zwillinger Genetski lawyers have investigated, litigated and counseled on a wide range of Internet issues including information privacy, and security,  cybercrime, surveillance, subpoena compliance, online marketing, behavioral advertising, Internet gambling, satellite and videogame piracy, intellectual property theft, and more.
