Travis LeBlanc


Litigation is rarely a first choice. I work to solve our clients’ problems efficiently, aggressively and strategically – whether in the marketplace, media, government agencies, legislatures, courts or all of the above.

Travis is a member of Cooley's litigation department leadership team and vice chair of the firm's cyber/data/privacy practice. He is a leading authority on cybersecurity, data privacy, telecommunications and the regulation of emerging and disruptive technologies. Drawing on his broad experience in federal and state government, he helps clients manage litigation and regulatory risk, as well as strategically respond to data breaches, cyberattacks, nation-state attacks, dissemination of stolen data, misinformation campaigns and government enforcement efforts, including those by the Federal Trade Commission and state attorneys general. In addition to overseeing crisis management, internal investigations and national security matters, Travis advises and counsels clients on complex commercial, antitrust and intellectual property litigation. The respect and skills Travis has earned during his career have translated into appointments and recommendations across the political spectrum, including his selection by the US Department of Commerce and the European Commission as an arbitrator for the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework in 2017 and his unanimous US Senate confirmation to the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board in 2019.
