Jeffrey A. May

Associate

Jeffrey A. May practices in the areas of general business law, intellectual property, and litigation with a focus on the increasingly important area of Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Law. His prior experience owning and operating a technology-based business, and his educational background focused in the area of information technology, allow him to assist clients with a wide range of business issues and litigation matters. Since joining Kerr Russell, Jeffrey has worked with clients to draft and negotiate contracts, acquire and protect intellectual property, and resolve disputes through litigation or through alternative dispute resolution methods. 

As part of his practice in the area of Cybersecurity and Data Privacy law, Jeffrey helps clients identify and mitigate risks related to data security incidents and breaches, information technology policies and practices, and data sharing arrangements with third parties. While the best way to ward off a cyber-attack is to proactively plan and vigilantly monitor systems for risks, data breaches happen to even well-prepared organizations. When they do, Jeffrey helps clients respond in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. 

In 2018, Jeffrey was named an “Up and Coming” Lawyer by Michigan Lawyers Weekly. Before joining Kerr Russell, Jeffrey was the law clerk to U.S. Magistrate Judge Mona K. Majzoub at the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. While working at the court, he also served as the Director of the Michigan Center for Civic Education’s High School Mock Trial Tournament.
