As employers, technology, media, and telecommunications (TMT) companies of all sizes face unique challenges in today’s environment—from big data analytics and data privacy and security, to protecting intellectual property, and to managing an agile workforce made possible by mobility and the cloud. Advancements in artificial intelligence will also change how work is performed and require companies to engage in strategic planning to minimize workplace disruptions. Additionally, innovations in health care delivery require counseling regarding regulatory, compliance, and medical liability risk management for health care organizations providing products and services associated with telehealth and mHealth. TMT companies need counsel who understand their business and are positioned to offer legal solutions that complement their business objectives.
The TMT service team at Epstein Becker Green brings a wealth of practical, results-driven experiences to bear in working with TMT companies seeking to stay ahead of the ever-changing legal landscape. Working in a coordinated manner, our TMT service team tailors the type and level of legal services to the particular needs of a TMT company client in a cost-efficient manner. Depending upon the nature of the matter that we are handling for a client, we can—and often do—draw upon the knowledge and experience of attorneys firmwide and nationally to develop a comprehensive strategy that will meet that client’s needs.
