NEW YORK – A Global law firm with more than 25 offices in the U.S., including one in Chicago, recently announced the launch of an "Artificial Intelligence" practice to help companies focus on legal issues in the "AI ecosystem."
DLA Piper's Artificial Intelligence practice is expected to focus on assisting companies with emerging and disruptive technologies in addition to legal and compliance risks that can stem from creation and deployment of AI systems, the worldwide firm announced May 14. The practice will be led by U.S. partners Larissa Bifano in Boston and Danny Tobey in Dallas, United Kingdom-based partners Gareth Stokes in Birmingham and Mark O'Conor in London, and Canada-based partner Robert Seidel in Edmonton, Alberta.
"The lawyers in the Artificial Intelligence practice work collaboratively with developers of new AI technologies and with established businesses looking to implement AI software," the announcement said. "The team features recognized thought leaders in AI law who collaborate with government agencies and industry associations to shape emerging rules."
DLA Piper lawyers work in offices throughout the Americas, including a location on West Lake Street in Chicago, as well as in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific.
