Technology + Privacy & Security
Technology is deeply embedded in every company’s business model, from leading-edge innovators to traditional content publishers exploring new distribution channels. It’s also inextricably tied to privacy and security issues, whether you’re purchasing cloud services, implementing AI solutions, licensing software, or selling internet-connected devices. We focus on the interplay between technology, privacy and data security to provide you with practical and cost-effective solutions that remove speed bumps from your business execution.
Industry insight yields more than just legal counsel
Technology may be a driving force across all industries, but that doesn’t mean the challenges and opportunities it creates look the same. Market-leading tech companies have different needs than tech-forward companies operating in highly regulated industries such as financial services, communications, and healthcare. Our clients need more than legal solutions—they need strategic business advice from attorneys who understand the particular challenges of their industry, particularly where tech innovations have made interpreting the applicability of existing regulations a complicated task. We draw on years of industry-specific experience as well as prior experience working in-house and within key government agencies to help you see what’s around the corner.
A fully integrated team reduces risk (and stress)
We have one of the deepest, broadest and most experienced teams covering technology transactions, privacy, data security, patent, and novel technologies. Our fully integrated team of subject matter experts works shoulder to shoulder with you and with each other to spot issues before they become problems and implement solutions tailored for your business goals and risk tolerance.
Staying ahead of the curve on emerging technologies
Disruptive technologies create challenging new legal questions. Those issues need to be addressed in order to minimize potential risks, but not at the cost of surrendering first-mover advantage. We focus on major technological innovations ranging from artificial intelligence to blockchain to the Internet of Things to help you understand the legal hurdles they might pose—including how to protect and utilize the massive amounts of data that you have access to. We also help you find ways to use them to achieve your strategic and operational goals.
How We Can Help
As companies develop new VR, AR, IoT, robotics and cloud products they often confront significant legal or regulatory roadblocks because the historical environment didn’t contemplate – and can’t easily accommodate – the capabilities and characteristics of the new technologies. We help clients navigate those gaps, conflicts and contradictions so their products can get to market quickly.
Privacy & Security
Like most firms that work in this space, we help companies design, implement, and strengthen privacy and data security programs; respond to potential data security incidents; and handle government investigations and litigation. What makes us different is how we help you achieve success.
Innovation is how your business stands apart in a competitive market. We protect those innovations - and help you maximize their value.
