Internet & Data Security

Internet & Data Security

Our business is protecting your business.

The Internet presents big opportunities and big threats to businesses worldwide.

The ability to conduct business anywhere in the world presents unique opportunities and challenges — not to mention global exposure to hackers, counterfeiters, cybersquatters, and pirates who want to unfairly profit from your hard work and goodwill.

U.S. businesses lose an estimated $300 billion every year to intellectual property theft, including trade secret breaches from online attacks.

Whether your business is an emergent startup or an established corporation, the right time to start protecting your business online is now.

We provide comprehensive legal services for all Internet and data security issues, including online infringement, brand misuse, domain name policy matters, data security, communications and commercial speech matters, notice-and-takedown procedures, and more.
