Intellectual Property
Artificial intelligence is an important component of many products and services. We help clients protect their intellectual property in these products and services though patents, trade secrets, copyrights, and trademarks.

Mergers, Acquisitions, and Other Transactions
We help clients organize corporations, partnerships, joint ventures, and other business organizations. We advise clients in evaluating technology for making investments and raising capital. And we assist clients in addressing artificial intelligence issues in contractual relationships with third parties.

Data Privacy and Cybersecurity
Artificial intelligence depends heavily on the collection and use of third-party data, which raises both privacy and security concerns. Our Data Privacy and Cybersecurity group has extensive experience in areas involving owning, using, sharing, selling, and regulating data; consumer and commercial agreements; and minimizing security threats.

Product Liability
We help clients design and commercialize products to minimize product-liability risk. When disputes over artificial intelligence arise, as they ultimately will, we have both the technical background and legal expertise necessary to vigorously represent our clients in court.
