What is an internet lawyer?
An internet lawyer is an attorney who focuses their practice on internet law and a variety of other related areas of the law. An internet lawyer will typically be well versed in both internet law and business and regulatory law, especially in the places where those two fields overlap with internet law.
What does an internet lawyer do?
Unlike your typical attorney, who will only have a limited background with internet law, web lawyers are able to provide guidance specifically on matters of internet law. They are able to handle internet legal matters and explain the legal nuances of internet legal matters to you much more quickly and efficiently than a regular attorney who would have to research the matter before giving you an opinion.
Internet attorneys also as a general rule work exclusively with the law in their one field, this in turn allows them to amass a reservoir of background knowledge upon which to draw when clients bring them internet legal matters. As a result, when clients bring internet legal issue to an internet attorney they can usually get right to work on coming up with your solution. They will also be able to walk you through the details should you want them to, rather than having to send you off and then alter call you back in once they have had the chance to do some billable research.
Also, since internet law is a relatively new field there is a general assumption that there is not much to it in terms of background and precedents that need to be weighed and considered. This however is not the case at all. Internet lawyers who have worked in the area for a while will be able to explain how the related law has developed over time and how it appears to be continuing to develop. They will also be able to take their knowledge and create a solution for your issue that weighs past precedents and developments and takes into account developing trends, giving you the full benefit of their background.
The ability to look at internet legal issues and quickly come up with and begin to implement solutions that factor in the law and account for its historical development is a (if not the) key defining characteristic of an internet lawyer.
