Need a Compliance Lawyer? New Cyber Regulations & GDPR.

Compliance Lawyer

Cookies, and privacy, and websites, oh my! Finding the right compliance lawyer can relieve some of the stress businesses face when discussing cyber regulations. With all the new data regulations taking effect, it is important to stay up-to-date with the latest news and changes in electronic communication. In January 2012, the European Commission set out plans for data protection reform across the European Union in order to make European electronic laws more compatible with the digital age. Well what does this mean for your business? What do “web cookies” even mean? Do I have to follow regulations if my business is in the U.S.? It is necessary to become familiar with the terminology that involves website security to ensure your business is compliant with many of the new privacy laws.

How will GDPR Impact my Business?

General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is here. Get familiarized with the GDPR, Europe’s New Privacy Law, and the impact it has on the future of the global data economy. The larger question that remains is, will GDPR come to the U.S?  Learn what this all means and how it impacts individuals and businesses. Lastly, get the resources you need to stay compliant and contact one of our regulatory attorneys. Read our client update today.

  • Investment in Opportunity Zones

    Opportunity Zones

    In December 2017, President Trump signed The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law enacting a national Opportunity Zone program designed to provide significant real estate and other investors significant federal tax incentives to invest in 8,700 historically distressed, state-designated neighborhoods throughout the United States. Specifically, the federal tax incentives provided through the Opportunity Zone program may permit an investor not only to defer present taxation on any of its currently realized and recognized capital gains, but also to reduce the actual amount of capital gains ultimately realized in the future. In addition, for certain investments held for more than 10 years, any and all gains on such investment amounts will be 100% tax-free for federal income tax purposes, to the extent initially comprised of deferred capital gains.
