Internet law — a.k.a., regulations and statutes that govern online business, marketing, promotions, and communications — is of one Gordon Law's core competencies. Our team of attorneys, accountants, and professionals works with startups, e-commerce entreprenuers, affiliates (marketers/networks), and businesses with an online presence who want to comply with state, federal, and international rules...in the most profitable way possible.

Is your business online privacy compliant?

Intellectual property is becoming ever more valuable, which is why theft and misappropriation are on the rise. Our business law team helps writers, artists, professionals, and businesses register intellectual property - and defend their rights when conflicts arise.
