Intellectual Property and Technology News Series

At the fore

One of the biggest challenges facing clients today is digital transformation. That doesn't mean just using more IT, putting up a website or having a Twitter feed. It's actually arriving at the understanding that, to compete in today's global marketplace, clients may have to break up the way that they've done business in the past and re-engineer it for the e-commerce world.

This transformation means using data and technology in fundamentally different ways and protecting your organization in new ways to address changing laws. Our lead story, on trade secret litigation, and our article on spyware aim to help you address your data and security issues. As you expand your business into global markets, we hope you will try our new GDPR app, created to help you understand the requirements of the important new EU data privacy law.

And, while we work to help you remain at the fore of the new digital economy, we know that you still have traditional business legal needs. Our report on significant developments in the US Supreme Court, and our article on reverse confusion, address those continuous concerns.

 

As this publication shows elsewhere, DLA Piper was named by BTI Consulting as one of the 7 best firms at Cybersecurity. Chambers and Legal 500 have named our IPT practices as leading not only in the US but also globally.

We actively work together with clients to help them evolve their business models as they strategize to operate in the new century. Please let us know how we can assist you in preparing and protecting your organization.
