Our Commitment to Diversity

Cloud, Internet, and E-Commerce

The legal landscape of the digital world seems to change on an almost daily basis. Companies across the globe need to keep current with laws related to internet, e-commerce, and social media. These days, there are so many critical legal concerns that need to be considered. From customer privacy to compliance with advertising laws, the list of applicable regulations grows larger every day. Furthermore, the extraterritorial reach of these regulations may jeopardize companies’ global online reach.

Our digitally savvy lawyers help clients navigate the unique challenges related to cloud services, internet, and e-commerce law. We provide guidance regarding cybersecurity and the broad range of data and privacy matters they face. Our lawyers also help with other fundamental issues, such as drafting compliant terms and conditions. Additionally, we advise clients regarding their social media-related legal needs. Whether there are concerns about copyright violations or conflicts with advertising laws, we assist with the moderation and monitoring of content. We also help clients develop their brands online–notably through influencers.

We provide clients with a wide spectrum of services related to cloud services, internet, and e-commerce law, including advice regarding the following matters.

  • Cyber insurance contracts
  • Agreements with cybersecurity providers
  • Data breaches
  • Personal data collection, sharing, and use
  • Website and app terms and conditions, acceptable use, and cookie policies
  • Digital marketing
  • Copyright compliance and licensing
  • Consumer protection, including misleading and deceptive conduct
  • Advertising standards


Cloud services are fundamental to industries throughout the global market place. We have extensive experience with cloud computing and software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) agreements on both the service provider and customer sides. We provide advice that balances the cost and other benefits with the potential risks, and help our clients make informed decisions and create practical policies with respect to cloud computing use.


The internet of things is already integrated into daily lives, from smart phones and connected vehicles to cloud-based work platforms. Also on the list are wearable technologies, online health services, smart buildings, and a variety of industry and energy applications, with more developments on the way.

The user data and activity collected by these internet-connected devices pose many legal concerns, including privacy and cybersecurity issues. Intellectual property disputes between companies over technology and data ownership are also not uncommon. Our team of lawyers combines technology, data protection, telecom, intellectual property, and other areas of business and legal experience to provide strategic legal solutions that can address the challenges of this evolving sector.
