While the Internet can be a boon for businesses, internet Law is the Wild West of the law. Because many internet law issues are unprecedented, internet law matters require a skilled and experienced attorney to navigate through the ever-changing maze of cases, statute, regulations (and even international law).
Centre’s Internet Law and Technology Practice covers a broad range of topics related to the law of the internet. While much of internet law involves the application of more traditional areas of law (such as copyright law, trademark law, and defamation law) to the internet, there are many pitfalls that attorneys without Internet law related experience may not know. This is why it is important to consider a firm with attorneys who have internet law experience.
What makes Centre’s Internet Law and Technology Practice ideal is that its attorneys not only have internet law experience, but also have complex commercial litigation experience and business law experience. As such, we can offer a comprehensive view of the legal landscape coupled with the expertise required in the ever-changing world of Internet law.
