What is an Internet Lawyer?
Like attorneys who specialize in “old” media, such as newspapers and television, Internet attorneys focus on applying the rule of law to protect their clients’ intellectual properties, reputations, and other interests in Web-related matters.
There are Internet attorneys who are experts in dispute resolution, including cyber litigation. Others specialize in protecting their clients in transactional matters, such as drafting e-commerce contracts.
Some Internet lawyers have a hybrid practice that offers both cyber litigation and transactional services. Many are primarily business attorneys who occasionally represent their client’s companies in e-commerce legal matters.
