New Cyber Co-chair, John Loyal, Elevates Cipriani & Werner to a New Level

Data breaches and other cyber-related incidents strike fear into the hearts of companies large and small. Who better to guide clients through all the impacts of such a breach than someone who has years of experience as a manager of cyber claims for one of the nation’s largest cyber insurance providers?

John Loyal, the new co-chair of Cipriani & Werner’s Cybersecurity, Information Privacy and Data Security team, is that person. In his prior role as a manager of the Cyber Claims Team at Chubb, John witnessed the exponential growth of the cyber industry.  He has personally handled hundreds of matters and ultimately led a dedicated cyber claims team that managed thousands of claims, including some of the largest industry breaches. John’s extensive background inside the industry helps him work seamlessly with clients and their insurance carriers.

Ernie Koschineg, the firm’s senior practice group leader, is thrilled that John has joined Cipriani & Werner: “Adding John to our team makes an enormous difference in the level of service we can give our clients. With his experience comes unprecedented knowledge: John is well-versed in all aspects of the breach response process as well as any resulting third-party litigation or regulatory investigations. John is a nationally recognized figure, and—hands down—you would be hard pressed to find any individual over the last several years who has been involved in more active matters than John Loyal.”

“I could not be more excited to join Ernie and the team at C&W,” said John. “I like to think that my unique past makes me well-suited to assist both C&W’s clients and their insurance providers, as I truly understand the crucial dynamic all parties play in the breach response. Ernie, the team, and I are well prepared to give clients best-in-class cyber solutions.”
