Harrison Pensa has announced a new Social Media Law Practice Group, led by David Canton. This new group will provide clients with practical advice on legally and safely conducting business online.
Based on many years’ experience advising clients on issues arising out of social media use, Harrison Pensa believes the time has come to recognize social media as its own emerging area of law. As a result, we are proud to launch our new Social Media Law Practice Group, developed from our deep knowledge and extensive understanding of the legal liabilities and implications arising from social media.
Trends in social media and online marketing have dramatically shifted how companies communicate and conduct business. However, not many businesses are fully aware of the legal and reputation risks that can arise from this relatively new medium. That is why Harrison Pensa now offers cross-disciplinary expertise to provide clients in numerous industries with practical advice on how to safely and legally conduct business online.
“We are all still finding our way on the social, business and legal aspects of the social media tools that the digital revolution has created,” says Social Media Practice Group Leader David Canton. “They can be valuable tools, but they also carry great potential for corporate risk and public embarrassment. We work with our clients to help manage that risk.” A business lawyer and trade-mark agent, David possesses a deep understanding of emerging technologies, is well versed on the variety of legal complications that arise from social media, and is recognized as one of “Canada’s top legal social media influencers” according to The Lawyers Weekly .
Harrison Pensa’s new practice group provides legal assistance for issues ranging from online sales requirements and copyright laws to matters of employee misconduct regarding social networking.
