Florida Attorneys Representing Local and Global Clients in Internet-Related IP Matters
When the Internet changed everything, it also gave rise to a host of new and complex legal issues. From the intersection of trademarks and domain names to issues of data privacy and security, virtually all aspects of doing business online have legal implications, and potentially-significant legal implications at that.
For companies of all sizes, mitigating risk while marketing, selling and storing data online involves three core legal components: protecting their own intellectual property, respecting others’ intellectual property rights, and ensuring adequate legal and regulatory compliance. At Lott & Fischer, we bring decades of experience to helping our clients protect their interests in the online environment. Our attorneys in South Florida and in Gainesville, serve clients throughout Florida and worldwide, providing comprehensive service for everything from securing domain names to litigating infringement and data privacy claims in federal district court.
