Jonathan E. Davis
Partner, Day Pitney LLP
Jonathan "Jed" Davis, a seasoned former career prosecutor, advises and represents companies and individuals in internal inquiries, government investigations and prosecutions, and in civil litigation. For the last ten years, he has helped clients navigate cutting-edge issues of cyber-driven risk, including computer intrusions, data breach response, misappropriation of intellectual property, online harassment, and electronic search and seizure by law enforcement.
Jed served for nine years as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Eastern District of New York, developing and trying a wide spectrum of fraud, money-laundering and organized crime cases before turning to the challenge of cybercrime as that District’s Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property Coordinator. He began his government career in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, serving for three years as an Assistant District Attorney in the Rackets Bureau.
After returning to the private sector in 2008, Jed was a Managing Director at Kroll Associates. During his four years there, he managed sensitive inquiries for institutions responding to hacking attacks and other cyber incidents, internal misconduct and mistake, external frauds, and corruption in the U.S. and abroad. From 2012 until his recent move to Day Pitney, Jed was the principal of his own law firm focusing on cybersecurity matters. His work at that firm ranged from investigation and litigation of breaches of standardized exam security, to assisting in the defense of computer programmers formerly employed by Bernard L. Madoff, to advising a state attorney general investigating hacks of retail chains, to representing companies and individuals in government investigations of cybercrime and official corruption.
