Information Technology Litigation

Technology is reshaping society at a rapid pace. While advancements in technology empower consumers, they also have unintended consequences that raise novel legal issues. Technology changes much faster than the laws that regulate it. Staying ahead of legal technical issues requires a law firm that can navigate fast-moving developments in a manner that puts the interests of consumers ahead of corporations.

When using smart devices, conducting online banking, completing point of sale transactions, shopping online, or even viewing social media, personal data is routinely stored by the companies with which consumers do business. These companies are responsible for safeguarding user data from being stolen and used illegally, but in today’s digital environment, large data breaches occur regularly.

Companies can also unlawfully harvest user data without consent from their customers. The lack of transparency regarding such practices raises many troubling legal concerns surrounding privacy, identity, fraud, and social engineering.
