The power of computers and mobile devices combined with the ubiquitous reach of the Internet has affected virtually every individual and disrupted longstanding business models.
Whether your business is creating the biggest game to entertain the daily commuter or collecting data to assess the effect of climate change on global health, these activities are subject to laws, regulations, licenses and agreements.
Our IT lawyers have a wide range of legal knowledge, education and experience to understand a client’s specific situation and business realities. Intellectual property law is the backbone of the practice, dealing with issues surrounding information-based assets such as software and proprietary data. We draft software licences and end user agreements as well as advise on the response to regulations surrounding data collection. Our commercial lawyers regularly provide contractual support for an array of IT businesses.
E-commerce transactions, for example, require providing personal information, which makes compliance with privacy and security laws and regulations a common theme. In cases of hacking or identity theft, we are mindful of the complexity related to the jurisdictional uncertainty of Internet-related law.
