The Firm has worked with businesses engaged in software development, bio-tech devices, construction materials, and the Internet.

The Berkowitz Firms clients are not only technology companies, but also mid-size businesses from many different industries such as manufacturing, health care, and service companies. In today's world, these clients also face many different technology law issues. Proprietary information, network security, privacy, E-mail, software development, and an Internet presence are a few examples of issues that confront companies that used to think technology law was only related to companies heavy into R & D.

For example, software systems are now used as diagnostic tools in areas ranging from medicine to helicopter maintenance and tax planning. What sort of liability might there be for users when such a system is defective? What impact does the Electronic Communications Privacy Act have on E-mail systems?

A sizeable segment of The Berkowitz Firms technology practice relates to Internet law. In addition to technology issues, Internet law involves such things as how to negotiate for on-line services, publishing on the Internet, liability issues in doing business on-line, electronic transactions, and the pitfalls of Internet regulation.
