Social media is reinventing the way companies, across all industries, interact with customers, promote products, and challenge competitors. Morrison & Foerster has been advising clients in the U.S., Europe, China, and Japan on the complex legal, regulatory, and policy issues presented by social media since before the advent of Facebook and Twitter.
We bring that experience to our clients as they balance the commercial realities of running a business with the risks posed by laws and regulations affecting social media. Our skills are particularly valued by companies operating in highly regulated sectors (such as financial services, credit reporting, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals), companies with a strong existing online presence, and companies operating internationally. Businesses facing multiple layers and regimes of regulation appreciate the timely, knowledgeable, and "real world" social media advice we provide.
To keep our clients ahead of emerging legal developments affecting the social media industry, we created Socially Aware, an award-winning newsletter and related blog devoted to the law and business of social media.
