International law jurisdictional complexities are common as businesses operate their business internationally through the Internet.  Issues regarding Internet of Things, Data Security, and Intellectual Property  transactions extending across national borders are complex.  These type of business scenarios at times involve intellectual property law, digital media law, and eCommerce law issues.  As these issues are interrelated, we work addressing the commercial world aspects pertinent to our clients’ needs as they inevitably involve risks exposing their business.  Businesses and individuals seeking to engage in overseas markets will need to meet the requirements of federal and state United States laws and that of the overseas host country, including relevant multinational agreements.  We are very familiar with the interplay of domestic and international laws at the crossroads of applying appropriate jurisdiction, giving rise to conflicts of laws, and to governmental regulations impinging on business.

As we advise international clients, we counsel on commercial agreements, Internet regulations, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, data security law, and privacy issues. We as well advise on managing risks and maximizing the opportunities associated with increasing international regulation of the Internet and eCommerce, negotiate business-to-business contracts, advise on licensing intellectual property, and on targeted online marketing and advertising of products and services.
