Web•Tech•Law has its origins in a “new media” focus area Paul Jacobson created in Jacobson Attorneys in 2008. This focus area grew into a social and digital media speciality until 2011 when Paul decided to create a focused Web and digital media legal and compliance services firm: Web•Tech•Law Proprietary (Limited) which was incorporated in January 2012.
Web•Tech•Law is South Africa’s first specialised Web and digital media legal and compliance services firm. There are a number of media and technology law firms and some pretty good lawyers working at those firms but developing frameworks and solutions for the social Web, in particular, requires lawyers to work counter-intuitively and we do that fairly well.
While we are the legal experts, we recognise that our clients frequently require non-legal services to better address the risks they encounter so we collaborate with a variety of professionals who are experts in social marketing, strategy, reputation management and other essential social Web-related services. In other words, we have developed a smart and holistic approach to our client’s challenges.
