New Tech & the Law ~ From the Chairman

(November 27, 2010)

We live in a time of rapid and profound change. Technology continues to revolutionize business, culture, and the fundamental ways we relate to one another. The speed at which we are advancing is exponential. It’s an exciting time for our clients.

That said, most of our common law was developed long before the digital revolution. Law is typically slow to change, and with technologies evolving at staggering speed, the law does not always keep pace with the novel and cutting-edge issues faced by businesses and individuals everyday. This dichotomy can pose unique challenges to attorneys, and the clients they protect.

In the inaugural issue of SML Perspectives, we are pleased to offer a selection of outstanding articles from some of our most experienced lawyers. We hope to provide insight into a few of the unforeseen legal consequences created by new technology across a handful of industries. Also included are feature articles on current matters of law as they relate to you.

We encourage you to voice your thoughts, concerns and ideas about the issues raised on this site and about how our firm might continue to serve your legal needs. As always, we’re listening.

Each of our lawyer's e-mail address is provided with his or her biography. If you are not a current client of our firm, you should not e-mail our lawyers with any confidential information or any information about a specific legal matter, given that our firm may presently represent persons or companies who have interests that are adverse to you. If you are not a current client and you e-mail any lawyer in our firm, you do so without any expectation of confidentiality. We will not establish a professional relationship with you via e-mail. Instead, you should contact our firm by telephone so that we can determine whether we are in a position to consult with you about any legal matters before you share any confidential or sensitive information with us.
