Technology has become a vital part of most people’s lives, as well as business strategy. In response, technology law is a growing and complex area of law. As technologies continue to advance, new legal issues arise at a rapid pace. To keep up with the latest developments, lawyers must have specific skills and knowledge. Whether an issue involves social media content, computer code, Internet protocol or hardware, we work collaboratively to conduct technology transactions and mediate technology disputes.
With the world largely dependent on technology, it’s no surprise that the body of law that governs technology is vast and complex. As technological innovation continues to advance the way business is conducted, it also presents challenges for clients, practitioners, and policymakers. Technology law is a rapidly evolving field in which new issues arise every day.
Technology law includes patent law, privacy law, cyber security, cybercrime, data security, antitrust law, biotech, regulatory compliance, and more.
Communication technologies are particularly vulnerable since media, free speech, and privacy laws are all incorporated into science and technology law. The development of hardware and software presents unique challenges to the traditional legal infrastructure governing transmission rights, intellectual property, liability, privacy rights, and free speech.
When technological issues arise in an adversarial context, our attorneys litigate complex technology legal issues (e.g., cybersquatting or intellectual property rights violations) in state court, federal court, and binding arbitration.
Technological advancements have driven data to be the most important asset in the world, leading to an increased number of data breaches, which can cause devastating damage. Data protection has now become one of the biggest legal issues faced by companies. They now have to implement policies and precautions to protect themselves from any legal repercussions that may arise from failing to protect data.
As technology continues to evolve, we welcome the opportunity to assist you in navigating through any potential legal issues that may come with that.
