Internet of Things

Connecting the world.

As the Internet of Things (IoT) proliferates and becomes more integrated into daily life, its influence will continue to be transformational. Husch Blackwell guides clients in developing strategies that minimize the risk and maximize the reward of interconnected and communicating devices. Our team understands the Internet of Things, and we help companies successfully leverage IoT products and services to achieve business objectives.

Our guidance to clients in the Internet of Things sector includes:

Intellectual property

We counsel companies on how to protect their intellectual property through all phases of product development. Areas of focus include patentable technology, copyrightable applications, trade secret processes, proprietary data and trademarks

Data privacy, cybersecurity and breach response

Husch Blackwell advises companies on using, monetizing and protecting data assets and helps them navigate the ever-shifting regulatory landscape on privacy rights. Our team includes former computer scientists, FBI agents and Department of Justice attorneys experienced in investigating and responding to data breaches.

Contracts and licensing

Contracts are essential at every link in the IoT chain. Our team negotiates, drafts, reviews and enforces development, nondisclosure, license, hosting, outsourcing and other agreements.

Future regulatory requirements

Our experienced public policy team carefully assesses new developments in the quickly evolving national and state regulatory landscapes. We advance clients’ interests by developing regulations, maintaining compliance and facilitating legislative solutions.
