Brian P. Kavanough joins Sidley Austin as new litigation partner in Chicago

Brian P. Kavanaugh has joined the firm Sidley Austin LLP in Chicago as a partner in its global Litigation group. He joins from Kirkland & Ellis LLP, where he was a litigation partner and one of the leaders of its Data Security & Privacy practice. 

Mr. Kavanaugh previously served as a member of Law360’s Privacy & Consumer Protection Editorial Advisory Board and was recognized as an “Illinois Rising Star” in Class Actions by Super Lawyers. He practices in both Illinois and Texas.

Mr. Kavanaugh has built a robust practice focused on healthcare, insurance and data privacy. He has defended clients in matters ranging from multidistrict litigation and class action suits to complex commercial disputes and arbitrations. A litigator for over two decades, Mr. Kavanaugh has represented major companies in a variety of industries, including life sciences, insurance, automotive, energy and cybersecurity.

“A trial lawyer of Brian’s caliber making a move to Sidley is another example of our status as a litigation powerhouse,” said Yvette Ostolaza, co-leader of Sidley’s global Litigation group. “Brian’s energy and experience fit seamlessly with that of our talented team, and will undoubtedly strengthen our healthcare, insurance and privacy litigation work. We’re thrilled to welcome him aboard as we continue to invest in top talent, ensuring that our clients have a litigation team built to handle their most complex matters.”
