Social Media Law Solicitors

Retain control of the technology you use – The world is changing and so is the way we communicate and interact with family, friends and work colleagues. New technologies propel the world forward but come with their own risks and dangers. Emails, tweets and facebook messages are subject to a different and dynamic set of laws to traditional media and methods of communication like TV or newspapers.

We help individuals and businesses negotiate their way through the very complicated legal maze that directly affects how they present themselves and respond to inbound communications across all current social media and sharing platforms.
