Gilbert + Tobin, today launched Digital Domain – a unique platform designed to help business understand and drive commercial value from digital technologies such as AI, big data, blockchain, cybersecurity and IoT.
The Digital Domain is a place where clients, lawyers and businesses can access curated information regarding the digital economy and emerging technology. It also features a suite of animated videos discussing different emerging technologies in the context of real life business applications and opportunities to scale.
The Digital Domain builds on G+T’s deep expertise in digital and its commitment to provide legal services that help business leaders build their capability and stay ahead of issues surrounding technological innovation and disruption.
G+T partner and head of the firm’s Technology and Digital practice, Sheila McGregor, said transformative technologies were already disrupting large parts of our economy and changing the way leaders need to think about how they run their business today as well as how this new generation of technology can unlock value for the future.
“Talking to our clients we noticed a common theme coming from senior leaders struggling to understand new technologies and their relevance to their businesses. With the regulatory environment evolving quickly and new laws such as the Mandatory Data Breach Notification now here, there’s a real risk that many people will find themselves caught out and left behind. We saw a need to cut through the noise and streamline the key concepts into a simple, easy-to-digest format”, said McGregor.
“Our team of over twenty-five specialist lawyers worked through the most important emerging trends and issues and developed a unique way to articulate why these issues were relevant and how they can leverage digital tools such as data, AI and blockchain to solve business challenges and innovate in an economy where change is the only constant”, added McGregor.
Launching with a series of resources across five key topics (Big Data, AI, Blockchain, IoT and Cybersecurity) Gilbert + Tobin will continue to grow and develop the Digital Domain to capture other topics and issues across digital economy and ensure the platform delivers engaging, immersive and commercially focussed content and education that adds value and meets the needs of its clients.
