Current news on key technologies

Businesses across the globe are struggling to keep up with the pace of technology and the laws governing that technology. From startups to fast-growing and middle-market businesses to mature global enterprises, our clients are companies that develop or create technology, are enabled by technology, or operate with a business model fundamentally based on technology.

In this issue, we focus on legal developments around some of these important technologies: autonomous vehicles, company data storage in the cloud, and the continuing uncertainty surrounding patent-eligible subject matter. We also are pleased to announce the arrival of several new partners to strengthen our offering even more. Among them is Andrew Serwin, one of the pre-eminent privacy and security practitioners in the world, who will serve as co-chair of our Data Protection, Privacy and Security group.
