Attorneys in the information technology and outsourcing practice group also stay on top of the latest developments in privacy law and security-related regulations, advising clients and assisting them in developing up-to-date compliance programs and other strategic planning initiatives.

Our attorneys provide unique value to clients through:

Extensive experience with vendors

We have negotiated with nearly all of the major vendors and a substantial number of the minor players in the information technology and outsourcing space numerous times and know the issues on which they will typically give, as well as the issues on which they will typically take a firm stance.

Technical and legal knowledge

Information technology and outsourcing contracts require particular provisions to ensure that purchased technology is properly installed, implemented (including training), tested, and maintained, with special warranties that provide meaningful remedies, and disentanglement provisions that will govern the transition when the contract expires or terminates. Similarly, information technology and outsourcing contracts require particular provisions to ensure that the services are properly performed by qualified personnel in accordance with specified service levels.

Practical business experience

All of our attorneys have practical experience in technology-focused businesses prior to attending law school, including software development, management of information technology systems, and engineering. We also have attorneys with MBAs and experience as in-house counsel.

We work closely with clients at the earliest possible stage, typically during the creation of the RFP, to develop the client’s priorities. We then use our extensive experience with vendors, our technical and legal knowledge, and our practical business experience to achieve the client’s priorities through effective and efficient contract negotiations.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS): Transforming Logistics (and Everything Else)

In our increasingly interconnected world, technology is constantly providing new tools and new opportunities, creating business models that were almost unthinkable only a few years earlier. Many of these new tools involve the use of “software-as-a-service” (or SaaS), in which a vendor or service-provider makes a software application available for widespread use through an Internet site or mobile app. The near-universality of mobile devices and wireless or broadband communications is now enabling SaaS to transform how we conduct both our lives and our businesses.

By Milton L. Petersen, published on September 1, 2011, in Tech Journal South.

Customers or users of outsourcing and cloud computing services are often, and justifiably, concerned about the risks associated their service providers, especially security-related risks. The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) has recently established a structure of Service Organization Control (SOC) reports to replace SAS 70 reports (i.e., reports produced pursuant to Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) No. 70 issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)), which have been used for years, often for purposes beyond their intended focus on financial reporting and controls.

Facebook, Twitter, and the Law: What Every CIO Should Know About Social Media

One of the few things we can say with any certainty is that the state of the law of social media will be vastly different 12 months from now.

With millions of people continuing to share online gigabytes-worth of what was once relatively private information, no business can be completely safe from the unintended and often harmful consequences of all that information being released into the wild.

One of the initial decisions facing someone starting a business is choosing the appropriate entity for the business.

Too many times, this decision is either not made at all, delayed until “the business is big enough” or made without any thought about the types of entities available or the advantages and disadvantages of each option.

There are four types of entities under Georgia law: sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation or limited liability company.
