Over the past several years, technology has arguably become the fastest expanding field of commercial law. In fact, legal issues regarding technology have become so ubiquitous in the media that neologisms such as "fintech", "proptech" and "insurtech" now get thrown about casually by legal professionals and laymen alike. Understanding the legal ramifications of new technologies, whether in the development or rollout phase, is critical for organizations to maximize their usefulness and profitability while limiting legal exposure that can hinder success. Alternatively, navigating the use of existing technologies- where the greatest exposure can come from protecting data and ensuring privacy- is also fraught with legal challenges.
