Ecommerce law services
What can an ecommerce lawyer do for you?
Our experienced ecommerce lawyers can help shield you from fines, lawsuits, and asset seizure brought by government agencies such as the FTC. We’ve had a focus on this industry since 2013, and our experience in the niche is unparalleled.
Not only do ecommerce businesses have state, federal, and international regulations to follow—they also must adhere to the terms of various selling platforms, and noncompliance could result in account suspension.
Our ecommerce law firm can serve as your staunch defender in an active case, or proactively review your marketing materials, affiliate contracts, and online policies to ensure you’re fully protected under the law. Whatever your situation, we’ll develop a custom, refined strategy around your unique needs.
Most importantly, we’re committed to providing personal, prompt attention to each and every client. With Gordon Law Group, you not only have experience on your side, but a dedicated, passionate team of attorneys you can always rely on.
What is ecommerce?
Ecommerce is exactly as the name suggests, “electronic commerce.” Any business, person, or animal (looking at you, Geico lizard) who sells any product or service via digital means is engaged in ecommerce.
A significant chunk of the ecommerce pie is “e-tail,” or virtual storefronts. Amazon and other online selling platforms open to third-party participation are a huge part of the e-tail model.
Hiring an ecommerce lawyer helps online businesses achieve long-lasting success by ensuring they follow the complex laws governing ecommerce.
Ecommerce lawyer: Regulations you need to know
Online sellers and marketers are subject to the same laws, rules, and regulations as every other business and promoter in the United States. In addition, they must comply with statutes that directly affect the ecommerce ecosystem, including (to name just a few):
- General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
- CAN-SPAM Act
- Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA)
- Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
- California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)
- Dot-com Disclosures
We’ve been working with affiliate marketers and online sellers for years. Our experience in the niche is unparalleled and personal—every client works with an experienced ecommerce attorney.
