IT Law

The information age is fast-paced. Companies must adapt quickly, or risk fading away. Legislative changes can come overnight, when mandated by court decision. For example, recent changes to the safe harbor data transfer rules. Factors like these can leave companies in legal limbo with their operations hanging in the balance.
