Digital & Social Media Law

Digitising your Business Brings its Own Challenges

Technology brings its own challenges: keeping up with the market and researching what technology to apply in your business, engaging the team and managing the risk and legal impacts alongside ensuring your staff understand their Social Media obligations, are just a few.

The myriad of existing and emerging Apps and software means that a decision to change technologies also requires you to teach your team how to engage with that technology and manage clients in an automated environment. A privacy breach is the major digital disruption in business today.

Using social media to grow your business requires you to manage legislative changes, new precedents, brand reputation management, how staff communicate with your clients and staff obligations on social media, both yours and theirs.

What Our Clients Say

I just want to thankyou for everything you’ve done, I appreciate your patience & understanding. Please pass my thanks along to Katherine as well.

Elizabeth M

I would like to thank Katherine Hawes and the team for the outstanding work they have dealt with this year. I recently had a social media bullying case and with knowledge of the team it was dealt with. Digital Age Lawyers "cares" for their clients.

I highly recommend Digital Age Lawyers for any law case.

Thank you so much Katherine Hawes and the team.

On behalf of the bentART Committee I would like to say a huge thank you for your generous sponsorship of bentART 2023. The 18th exhibition was outstanding in every way. Over 100 artworks were displayed, with thirty percent of artists new to bentART. Almost a third of the artworks sold. A total of 785 visitors came through the gallery between Friday night and Monday afternoon (some were repeat visitors) and the feedback about the exhibition was very positive.

I have seen Katherine speak and have been involved with her assisting a business who was being bullied on-line. She acted immediately and the owners were grateful and relieved. A First Class down-to-earth solicitor who genuinely cares.

Debra W

Had a fabulous meeting with a lawyer yesterday! Yes, a LAWYER!! Tears of laughter whilst discussing some pretty important but boring stuff. Law needn’t be scary, boring or confusing if you have the right lawyer. Thank you Katherine Hawes. I’m looking forward to working with you.

Lisa G

Thank you for your support! We are so excited looking forward to working on our next investment with you all.

Great teamwork!
