Our Commitment to Diversity

Social Media Law

Our Social Media Law practice includes lawyers from practice groups and regions across our global network, and serves prominent clients in diverse industries around the world.

In all aspects of legal practice, our firm can be found squarely at the forefront of emerging markets. Our Social Media Law team is no exception. Drawing from a robust and talented group of lawyers from a variety of legal disciplines, we have assembled a powerful team equipped to address all issues where social media and the law intersect, including in local, national, and cross-border transactions and disputes.

At the heart of our Social Media Law practice is a keen awareness of the role that social media plays in today’s business development and success. Our practice is specifically designed to assist clients in maximizing social media to achieve business goals. At the same time, we provide our clients with critical guidance to ensure their social media uses conform with existing legal precedent, as well as regulations governing the fields of intellectual property, advertising and marketing, employer-employee relations, importing and exporting, corporate governance, and more. We also work closely with clients to craft effective litigation prevention strategies surrounding social media use, and draw upon our world-class litigation talent to vigorously protect business, proprietary, and personal interests if and when the need arises.

What We Do

Over the past several years, we have fielded an increasing number of inquiries regarding the application of current law to social media use, with a particular focus on social media’s impact on business creation, development, regulation, and marketing. Those inquiries have spanned our practice areas, implicating intellectual property, advertising, trade disparagement and defamation, discovery, privacy, employment law, securities law, and more.

As a direct response to this emerging legal market, we have woven together our vast resources to form a distinct Social Media Law practice. Through this team, we can serve a diverse range of client needs.
