I work with businesses in the automotive, insurance, and financial industries – and technology changes are affecting all of them. At the same time, regulators are playing catch up, figuring out how to regulate technologies that are going to hit the market in the next few years. My job is to keep up with technology and the law – so I can address both the legal and business goals of my clients.
