Steptoe has been at the forefront of the developing legal and regulatory environment for the Internet and e-commerce in the United States and internationally. We represent leading financial services, telecommunications, technology, information services, and insurance firms on the wide array of issues relating to e-commerce regulatory matters, as well as on potential liability to customers and interaction with law enforcement and other government agencies. We continually monitor legal developments affecting client interests in various aspects of e-commerce, privacy, and security.

The broad implications of homeland security laws, regulations, and policies increasingly require companies and governments to have detailed understandings of the relevant rules, practices and political dynamics. Steptoe’s National and Homeland Security group is well-versed on the homeland security mission, including international trade facilitation, immigration, cybersecurity and infrastructure protection, emergency preparedness, and counterterrorism.
