The 21st century’s digital revolution has made technology integral to the success of companies and the markets in which they operate. Business of all sizes in every sector recognize the role that technology can play in their growth and success, as well as the risks it creates for competitiveness and liability. The lawyers of Owen Bird’s technology law group understand these challenges and opportunities, and we provide businesses with practical advice for navigating this ever-changing landscape.

Among the questions that clients routinely pose to our technology lawyers are: How does intellectual property law protect our hardware, software, and digital information? Who is liable for Internet defamation? Is an Internet Service Provider (ISP) guilty of a crime if obscene material appears on its site? What must companies do to comply with federal anti-spam legislation? Is workplace email private, or does it belong to the employer? What about privacy and security issues on computer networks?

Owen Bird’s technology group lawyers have decades of experience in countless areas of technology law. Our diverse roster of professionals includes industry-recognized technology law experts and former technology practitioners. Crucially, we have a proven track record of success, representing clients in litigation before all levels of court and advising technology businesses such as network operators, ISPs, and web-based businesses on how to maximize their legal opportunities.
