Perkins Coie's e-commerce lawyers have worked with some of the Internet's foremost pioneers. We also represent more traditional companies that are leaders in developing e-commerce capabilities. Using the experience acquired from these representations, we:
- Identify and resolve groundbreaking legal issues ranging from data protection and privacy to tax and jurisdiction;
- Guide start-up clients through the basics of business formation, financing, content regulation and Web site management;
- Help clients procure, protect and deploy their intellectual property - for many businesses their most valuable assets; and
- Provide legal solutions involving encryption, multijurisdiction product offerings and domain name registration.
The growth of the Internet and e-commerce has been accompanied by an ongoing shakeout as companies define and refine their competitive niche. We help them respond through redeployment of key intellectual properties and more traditional corporate solutions, including mergers and acquisitions.
