Butzel Long attorney Claudia Rast profiled in the Macomb County Legal News
Untangling the Web: Area attorney helped write the 'book' on cybersecurity
By Linda Laderman
For as long as she has been in practice, Claudia Rast, a shareholder in Butzel Long’s Ann Arbor office, has used her science background to help her clients manage their technology-related issues.
“When I was seven years old I wanted to be a neurosurgeon. It’s my geek path,” Rast said. “My first few years out of law school I was doing environmental work dealing with chemical and hazardous waste constituents, which is basically forensics, so cybersecurity was a natural for me.”
A graduate of University of Michigan with a degree in natural resources and the Detroit Mercy School of Law, Rast was recently reappointed to serve a one-year term on the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Cybersecurity Legal Task Force.
