John Barlament, Partner, Qualres & Brady

John Barlament is the Chair of our Quarles & Brady Data Privacy & Security industry team. He is an author of one of the country's leading manuals on the HIPAA privacy and security rules, HIPAA Portability, Privacy & Security (Thomson Reuters / EBIA), as well as other seminal publications including A Primer on Online Privacy (Wisconsin Lawyer magazine) and International Guide to Privacy (American Bar Association).

John is recognized as a national leader in this emerging and constantly changing area of law. He has been quoted in leading publications including The Wall Street Journal, and interviewed by national media including National Public Radio, about privacy, data breach and cybersecurity matters.

For multi-employer plans, John is one of the few attorneys in the country who has limited his practice to representing the plans and their trustees on a "sole counsel" basis. That is, in order to ensure consistency in advice among multiemployer plan clients, John does not represent "management trustees" or "labor trustees" -- instead, he represents both, with no bias towards either side.

John prides himself on staying abreast of state-of-the-art industry practices, and translating complex and intersecting areas of law into practical, plain-English advice -- all to help clients efficiently and effectively meet challenges arising these rapidly changing areas of law.
