We are actively involved in cutting edge electronic discovery ("e-discovery") matters.
Here is a CNET News Story Profiling Ira P. Rothken's Career protecting Internet technology companies.
In addition to our robust litigation practice we assist electronic entertainment, high technology, and e-commerce companies in their business, startup, and legal transactions. For example, since the inception of the "commercialized" internet in the mid 1990s, we have represented some of the largest and most successful web sites in the world on a huge range of matters from startup issues to risk reduction strategies to e-commerce policies and agreements. In many instances we were called upon to handle issues where there was no clear precedent and thus we had to innovate a solution.
