Retain control of the technology you use with our cybercrime solicitors.

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. 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.

Our cybercrime solicitors help individuals and businesses negotiate their way through the very complicated legal maze that surrounds social media law.

This includes how you present yourself and respond to inbound communications across all current social media and sharing platforms.
