When Your Voice Matters

We Are Your Voice “In The Room”

As a law firm focused on emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain, we have a front-row seat and a nuanced understanding of the effect regulation, or lack thereof, has on companies, consumers, and economies. By its nature, the formation of law and policy is complex, with many variables. From political views to subject matter understanding, lawmakers and the citizenry have disparate opinions about emerging technologies and how they should be regulated.

At RICHT, we strongly believe that industry has a role to play in the rigorous policy debate required for forming legal frameworks that result in positives for all stakeholders. Regardless of the sector, whether our practice areas of privacy law, artificial intelligence, or LexoCrypto™, we see that industry stakeholders can positively shape the law. The reverse is also true, though. Where industry does not have a voice in shaping policy, regulations can have a detrimental effect, not only on a company’s future but also on the overall trajectory of the success of a nation. While our traditional legal services focus on helping clients navigate existing law, we believe that to provide clients with maximal value; we must ensure that they have a voice in the room when the laws affecting their future are being debated for passage. From large companies such as Google advocating for a comprehensive approach to privacy law to small businesses that are part of a trade group to ensure they can continue to reach their customers via targeted advertising, there is a place for all parties in the process of legislation.

RICHTPOLICY is our public affairs and government relations practice that focuses on helping clients in areas of emerging technologies have an effective say in the policy debate, which is highly dynamic and experiences changing alliances. Our integrated and comprehensive offering includes issue advocacy, digital infrastructure, and communications services via the combined and complementary capabilities of RICHT&Co., Baker Hartford, and the CyPri Society.

We are your voice “in the room.
