Internet of Things

The internet of things (IoT) is part of everyday life, and it affects every industry — from technology to health care to life sciences.

The “internet of things,” the network of connected objects that communicate with the internet and each other, is no longer just a buzzword. Today, there are billions of networked touchpoints, even outnumbering automobiles, and that number is projected to grow to 50 billion by 2020. The internet of things (IoT) is part of everyday life, and it affects every industry — from technology to health care to life sciences.

At Pepper Hamilton, we advise companies that make IoT their primary business, as well as those that view this dynamic area as a complement to existing strategies. Our IoT clients include companies that work with hardware and sensor technology, wearables and other connected devices, and software and networks. We also represent companies that are utilizing IoT for groundbreaking developments in data analytics.

We understand that to advise on IoT, you need to understand both the technology and the numerous industries impacted. Our multidisciplinary teams are well-versed in the issues raised by an increasingly connected digital world and how they affect individual companies.
