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.

Developments in IT also give rise to new legal challenges. Products based on the collaborative economy, service aggregators, social media platforms, and cloud computing have all been breaking legal ground worldwide. We work closely with you to capitalize on these developments, and also resolve issues in uncharted waters in the courts. And as we continue to move businesses online, cybersecurity, and high-profile breaches, often dominate the headlines. As such, we assist you with potential liability concerns, in case of a major security breach.
