Social Media Practice Launched by Haynes and Boone
07/13/2011

DALLAS – Haynes and Boone, LLP has launched a Social Media Practice, a cross-sectional group comprised of more than 40 attorneys, led by Partner David Bell. The group covers a broad reach of industries and legal issues impacting companies today as a result of social media use.

Having worked with clients in the area of social media for more than two years, the practice was formed to more strategically serve a growing client base and to highlight the firm’s deep experience with IP, venture capital, corporate, labor and employment, litigation, antitrust, franchise and other legal needs in the social media arena.

“Social media, of course, is a phenomenon of immense popularity affecting all clients,” said Bell. "Trends in social media and mobile communication have dramatically shifted how companies communicate their messages and conduct business."

 

Haynes and Boone encourages companies to think about the variety of legal implications that have developed with the rise of social media ― from the need to monitor employee use and libelous postings to the growth of impersonators and the need to protect company brands.

These issues require a deep understanding of the technology and medium involved. Haynes and Boone draws from an interdisciplinary team of experienced lawyers to provide social media counseling to a broad range of clients.
