Need a Compliance Lawyer? New Cyber Regulations & GDPR.

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.

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.

  • End of Year Tax Update

    The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, signed into law by President Trump on December 22nd, 2017 (the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act”), added Code Section 199A to the Internal Revenue, which provides for up to a 20% deduction applicable to pass- through income, including income from S-Corps, partnerships, and sole proprietorships.
