Finding a good artificial intelligence (AI) lawyer

We don’t just understand AI, we’re helping to shape the market. Advising governments and industry on policy direction in Europe and the Middle East, we’re working on a range of leading edge AI deals and have helped our own business pioneer the use of artificial intelligence in the legal sector.

Helping firms solve artificial intelligence (AI) issues

Our artificial intelligence experience is broad. Whether you represent government, are a supplier of AI, or are procuring an AI solution, we’ve worked with organizations like yours before and know what it takes to ensure your business’ interests are protected.

AI is not bound by geography and often involves some form of multi-jurisdictional approach. Wherever you need us, we have lawyers on the ground across the globe that can deal with all local law issues while considering the wider international and commercial impacts.

Our artificial intelligence (AI) services

Our cross-departmental team can help you with the whole range of legal advice around your AI project, from protecting Intellectual Property, understanding the data and data privacy issues, dealing with the cyber security aspects, advising you on governance, transparency and accountability, issues and obligations, putting in place your contract and/or building your sales or procurement templates. We also advise heavily around the ethical issues around AI with a strong focus on helping you ensure you contract for an AI solution that is unbiased. Increasing legislation and guidance is coming to the fore and we predict much more coming to fruition in 2020. We can help you horizon scan and keep abreast of the legislation and guidance to help you ensure a legally compliant AI project.

Our team is experienced in AI ethics and can work with you to develop an AI governance framework, together with accompanying training material, tailored to your sector and use of AI. We also offer training for firms looking to bring AI capability in-house, utilizing members of our IT and AI Law departments, to deepen understanding of the issues from both a technical and legal perspective.

We advise on the taxation treatment of AI as well as the insurance and product liability issues when AI is utilized in various forms, including in products, connected, IoT and autonomous vehicles, smart factories and cities, networks and more.
