The rapid evolution of social media presents businesses, and individuals alike, with both new opportunities and myriad risks each day. Focusing social media efforts in the right direction takes not only flexibility, but also a legally savvy digital strategy. Porter Wright offers an experienced team of attorneys knowledgeable across each facet of the growing social media landscape. We help ensure our clients build a legally sound approach to carefully grow their business or individual brand presence, deepen customer relationships and achieve business goals, all while mitigating risk.
Our social media team brings together a diverse group of attorneys focused on areas of law regularly affecting, and being affected by, social media. From the latest on the discoverability of information posted on social media sites, to how social media affects the hiring, evaluation, discipline and termination policies for employers, to necessary SEC disclosures and FTC guidelines on advertising in social media, to the administration of sweepstakes, we routinely handle the issues that increasingly transform our clients' day-to-day business operations and entrepreneurial goals.
