Consulting and advice
The legal and regulatory frameworks governing businesses' digital and online initiatives is becoming more and more complex. Legislation like the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act, the Consumer Protection Act and the imminent Protection of Personal Information Act are reshaping the consumer-oriented marketplace just as non-governmental bodies are enforcing legal frameworks which may have even more profound implications for businesses subject to those frameworks. Keeping up to date on all of these developments and how they impact your business can be a pretty daunting and time consuming task.
We can help you identify the key developments that are relevant to your business and advise you on how best to cater for them.
We'll spend time with you getting to know your business and better understanding your concerns as we identify the pertinent issues and risks you should address. Based on that understanding we will advise you on how best to address those issues and risks while ensuring improved compliance with the statutory and regulatory frameworks that are relevant to your business. In many cases, risk is part of the cost of doing business and a better understanding of that risk's origins and potential implications means you can make better informed decisions while managing the risk at levels you are comfortable with. Where we can help you eliminate the risks you face, we'll do that too.
We also spend a fair amount of time keeping an eye on trends in the online legal space and thinking deep thoughts about what those trends could mean to our clients and the risks they present. We prepare reports on these trends and publish abbreviated versions of these reports on this site in Legal Notes and prepare more detailed reports for our clients. We also attend industry events and generally indulge our insatiable curiosity about what businesses and consumers are doing on the Web and how that information could be useful to our clients.
