Practicing What We Preach: A Roundtable Discussion on How to Practice Technology Law @ Home

It is fair to say that ITechLaw’s membership has advised tens of thousands of clients on legal aspects of utilizing technology.  Suddenly the means by how we advise – our work processes – have changed inviting personal innovation and creativity.  Today, as we all work from our homes, ITechLaw embraces “We are all in this together” and asked four of our technology lawyer members to share their thoughts on how to best utilize technology to team with colleagues, advise clients and manage the new work/life family balance.


The California Consumer Privacy Act - What it Is and What Clients Need to Know, Particularly In Light of COVID-19

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) went into effect on January 1, 2020, and it establishes new consumer privacy rights for California residents and imposes significant new duties and obligations on commercial businesses conducting business in the state of California. Consumer rights include the right to know what personal information a business is collecting, selling, and disclosing about them; the right to deletion; the right to opt-out of the sale of personal information; and the right not to be discriminated against (written as a business duty).


Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Small Firms

With COVID-19 causing governments to recommend (if not compel) “remote only” or virtual work for businesses across the world, law firms of all sizes need adapt to these changed circumstances.  On one hand, small firms may be able to dynamically adapt and react more easily by the very nature of their smaller size.  However, small firms will often not possess the resources to implement technological changes on a firm-wide scale.
