Brian Gudmundson Appointed to Leadership Role in Equifax Data Breach MDL

Zimmerman Reed partner Brian Gudmundson has been appointed to serve on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (PSC) on behalf of financial institutions nationwide in the multidistrict litigation (MDL) against Equifax.  The MDL litigation relates to Equifax’s massive data breach, which compromised the sensitive personal information of nearly half the United States population.  The PSC, along with Co-Lead and Co-Liaison counsel, will seek to recover losses experienced by financial institutions who issued payment cards that were stolen in the data breach, and who rely on Equifax to provide information to facilitate the extension of credit and other services to customers.  To learn more about the investigation, visit www.zimmreed.com/case/equifax-data-breach/.
