Mark McCreary and Dan Reiter Named Among the Best Attorneys in Business by Philly Biz

June 30, 2016 – Press Releases

Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to announce that Mark G. McCreary, the firm’s Chief Privacy Officer, and Partner Dan Reiter were selected among the Best Attorneys in Business by Philly Biz in the areas of privacy compliance/data security and real estate, respectively.

The inaugural list highlights 49 of the “top legal minds” in the Philadelphia region.

Asked to provide advice to business owners, McCreary told Philly Biz, “You should ensure that your business attorney meets these two criteria – someone you trust and someone you respect. In times of crisis, your business attorney should be your trusted adviser and a good listener, someone with whom you can share your ideas and options to move your business forward, your goals and ambitions and someone you can challenge.”

McCreary focuses his practice on compliance with privacy-related laws, rules and regulations (domestic and international), as well as responses in the event of a data breach. Because of the incredibly wide range of applicable regulations, McCreary understands that advising on privacy-related issues is not an area of law that should be practiced “on the side” and diligently stays up-to-date on this ever-changing field. He spearheads the firm’s privacy policies (both intra-company and for customers), handles privacy issues under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and related requirements for the privacy of consumer financial information (including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)), prepares data security plans and assists with data breach responses and notifications.

McCreary is a regular contributor to the firm’s Privacy Compliance & Data Security Blog and he developed a Privacy Desk Reference.

Reiter’s experience across a wide array of real estate, finance, energy and general corporate matters, together with his unwavering emphasis on client service, positions him well to represent a range of developers, owners and operators, lenders and investors, and a diverse group of other businesses and principals in connection with sophisticated real estate, finance, energy and other transactional matters.

Reiter has represented local, regional, national and international developers in connection with a variety of real estate and energy assets, including the acquisition, financing, development and operation of utility-scale solar energy installations, office buildings, shopping malls, industrial parks and multi-family housing. He also represents landlords and tenants in connection with the leasing of iconic, trophy and class A office space, as well as restaurant, retail and ground tenancies. Moreover, clients routinely look to him in connection with complex, highly sensitive commercial disputes.
