CP2’s technology team provides full-service representation to the fast-growing technology sector as well as technology controls support for business clients concerned about the impact of technology on business operations.

Specifically, we provide assistance with:

IT Regulatory Compliance

We help clients comply with state, federal, and international laws, regulations, and industry standards related to technology, data security, and privacy.

We assist with the development of and ongoing maintenance of programs and policies required to comply with GLBA, FDCPA, PCI-DSS, FCRA, SOX, HIPAA, HITCECH, ECPA, COPPA, and others.

Agreements

CP2 assists clients with the creation of numerous technology-focused agreements, including service level agreements, outsourcing agreements, software development and maintenance agreements, non-disclosure agreements, and click-through agreements, among others.

Finance and Tax Matters

Working across the firm with attorneys in our business, finance, and tax sections, CP2 assists clients with all issues pertaining to finance and tax implications of technology, including funding, asset purchase structuring, and infrastructure replacement planning.

Licensing and Intellectual Property

The Technology and IP practice groups at CP2 assist clients to identify, create, protect, and enforce intangible assets and maximize their ROI on intellectual property.

IT Auditing

There are many reasons a client may seek an external IT auditing consulting firm, including guidance on the development or refinement of internal controls and processes, gaining an outside perspective on IT risk, assisting internal IT audit staff, or seeking assurance on the IT function for outside clients and vendors.

Our technology team includes attorneys not only versed in the law but also certified as information systems security professionals, giving us expertise in both the legal and technical details needed to provide comprehensive IT auditing services.

At CP2, our IT auditing services include the planning and execution of IT general control and application reviews, IT security and governance reviews, pre- and post- implementation reviews, IT risk assessments and mitigation strategies, and the review of information system controls to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information across the business.

Litigation

In conjunction with our litigation team, the CP2 technology section provides litigation services for all technology-related matters, including IP enforcement, vendor disputes, breach of contract, data breaches, and employment issues.

Information Risk Management

Our attorneys advise clients on security considerations and privacy matters in designing and implementing products and services throughout their data life cycles. We assist clients in the creation on internal governance plans that adhere to industry best practices (FISMA, COBIT, etc.) and prepare clients for third-party assessments and audits.

CP2 also helps formulate presentations on organizational governance, privacy and security issues, and other IT initiatives for boards of directors and senior management. In addition, we help deploy training and awareness programs across the workforce and draft legal disclosures and policies relating to information risks and risk management practices.
