Companies around the world are exploring ways in which AI can improve functionality, speed and productivity as well as unlock greater returns on investments. As a game-changer across a number of industry verticals, AI is helping our clients turn consumer data into actionable insights.

Enabled by our broad experience working with many of the world's most innovative technology companies, our AI team is advising companies— from startups to FORTUNE 50 corporate giants and government agencies—as they explore the ways in which artificial intelligence can help meet their organizational goals. We have extensive experience advising our clients as they develop, test and launch AI and machine learning products and services, and have advised them and provided regulatory assessments on a wide range of issues, including algorithmic bias, algorithmic collusion, biometrics, ADA accessibility and law enforcement access, among other areas.

Current uses of AI are only the beginning. Many of our clients, both public and private, are investing large sums of capital not only to develop and acquire these technologies, but also to integrate them into their business models and legacy devices and systems. Our clients recognize that the integration of AI and machine learning technologies through bots, robotics, conversational technologies or other means will be vital to remain competitive as systems become more complex and require self-organizing intelligent agent protocols to maximize efficiency. 

From concept to launch, we provide guidance on the development of products and services that merge digital presence, physical hardware and human-inspired intelligence. We represent providers and purchasers of AI and we routinely advise on data use, including data ownership, data privacy compliance and data security compliance, intellectual property issues associated with AI projects, portability and re-usability of AI, risks of algorithmic discrimination, and other legal issues unique to AI.

How AI Issues are Emerging in the Law

  • Algorithmic Collusion
  • Algorithmic Discrimination
  • IP Ownership/Rights
  • Labor & Employment
  • Privacy & Data Security
  • Product Liability
  • Law Enforcement Access

In addition to these areas, our team is frequently recognized for our capabilities and experience that intersect with AI,  such as startup company financings, commercial contracts, cloud and edge computing, litigation risk mitigation, intellectual property, labor and employment, real estate and investment management as well as the guidance we provide in connection with mapping the regulatory landscape governing the development and use of AI, IoT and blockchain technologies.

Many of our attorneys have advanced scientific or computer programming degrees that include a focus on artificial intelligence, or have previously worked as researchers or in-house counsel for companies focused on AI before it made the transition from purely scientific theory to actual, real world application. Our multidisciplinary capabilities and experiences span the wide range of machine learning and sensing technologies, including engineering, biometrics, optics, microelectronics, systems engineering, signal processing and neural networks.
