The lawyer who understands his or her client’s technology will stand out as a trusted counselor who can analyze and provide sound advice on technology issues. As your client’s business changes to meet new technologies, the legal issues it encounters only multiply. A lawyer who does not have the tools to understand the technology issues confronting clients cannot be an effective counselor, since these issues arise in clients’ routine contracts, business negotiations and litigation. Success in the courtroom often depends on having the most effective understanding, analysis and presentation of a client’s technology-related disputes. Technology problems and conflicts over valuable intellectual property impact many types of business disputes.
Even pre-trial discovery requires an effective mastery of technical issues. Lawyers, who often have no formal technical training, are required by court rules to report on their client’s technology infrastructure so that a judge may address electronic discovery issues. Many discovery concerns can be resolved without reliance on expensive outside experts, if counsel understands the underlying technology. In addition, avoiding unnecessary disputes will speed up litigations and decrease pre-trial discovery costs. This unique program will give lawyers the necessary background to become more knowledgeable and effective advocates in technology-related matters.
