Balser stepped into the Capital One case on the heels of the Equifax litigation. To represent Equifax, Balser teamed with Phyllis Sumner, King & Spalding’s chief privacy officer, who leads the firm’s data, privacy and security practice. Equifax, a credit-reporting agency, suffered a breach that compromised the personal information of 147 million of its customers. Balser negotiated a settlement, which includes $1 billion on cybersecurity measures and a $380.5 million fund for customers, after failing to dismiss the lawsuits. The deal has faced some controversy after a big claims turnout threatened $125 checks to individual class members.
