Over 20 years ago, in one of the first books to touch exclusively on the topic, our founder Patricia Peck wrote that a new area of practice in Law was emerging driven by technology: Digital Law. Society was changing, and Law would also follow this transformation.
It was not a separate discipline, but an interdisciplinary area, which would involve all areas of Law and permeate all fronts of the business of our clients.
Since then, we have become the pioneer and leader firm in this area that we have helped to consolidate in the private, public and academic sectors in Brazil.
This leadership was only possible with clients who were also looking at the future, and they worked together with a team of lawyers who decided to explore a topic that had not even become a discipline in Law Schools.
From the development promoted together with clients and partners, PECK Advogados is a firm that works by converging these three areas:
We are a team of lawyers and experts who understand technology and business. That's why we were able to go beyond traditional practice, bringing together different disciplines to enable and leverage the digital innovation and transformation that our clients are looking for.
Innovation and transformation always involve risks. That is why it is essential to be protected, but at the same time to have a strategic partner to help the company look at the future and foresee the opportunities for growth and competitiveness.
When Law goes beyond its own borders and joins Technology to maximize Client Innovation, we know that something new and unique is emerging in the market.
We live in a digital and connected society, with technology intensifying, streamlining and democratizing human relations.
That's why we believe in the practice of Law that joins traditional practices and knowledge and goes beyond, driving the innovation strategy of the companies. The practice of Law that takes into account digital innovation and enables it.
If our clients are searching for success, we search with them. We believe in long-term relationships. By being close to our clients, we seek to understand their challenges and bring transparent, pragmatic and feasible recommendations to ensure their success.
Using “We” is better than using "I". The greater the diversity, the stronger the team. When people from different backgrounds, beliefs and experiences get together, there is a significantly greater likelihood to solve any complex challenge.
If problems cannot wait, neither can we. We believe that a firm should not only seek to grow in size, but to have a structure capable of responding quickly to clients’ demands, in a close and proactive manner.
A firm is the sum of its people, and they are responsible for the results we deliver to our clients. We always keep a connected and strong team, with excellent training and world view, and that thinks about results and not just reports.
Who is thinking about laws that have not been written yet? We are always at the frontier of knowledge, providing state of the art work. We study, research and bring the most up to date techniques and approaches to tackle the issues of our clients.
Constant training on ethics and technology creates a more amicable and sustainable social and business environment. We are determined to train people and organizations on the ethical, safe and legal use of technology.
Our goal is to support our clients' digital innovation journey towards technological transformation, we help both Startups and large national and international economic groups. To do so, we carry out due diligence of their intangible assets to be in compliance with the new regulations. We carry out legal feasibility studies and risk analysis of the projects to support the use of digital signature, biometrics, facial recognition, blockchain, cryptocurrencies, NFTs, use of data in products and services, in industries ranging from Telehealth to Open Banking.
We help public and private clients define their model of Data Ethics and implement the Privacy and Data Protection Program. We consider the context of the Brazilian legislation (LGPD) as well as international legislation. We offer legal advice to develop the management project and the compliance roadmap, to survey the inventory of personal data and we also offer the service of Data Protection Officer (DPO), as well as support with DSAR, the Brazilian Data Protection Authority (ANPD) and response to incidents. We also help clients change culture with workshops and training.
The firm provides support related to corporate contracts involving business or innovation operations and/or use of new technologies, M&A, contracts related to the use of technology in general, as well as, support in mediation and arbitration for conflict resolution.
We work to protect the main intellectual assets, to avoid exposure, infringement and threats to the Trademark and Reputation of Institutions. We support the legal protection of digital innovation with patent and software registration. We provide consultancy on copyright and image rights and we perform IP due diligence for risk analysis
We provide advice for institutions regarding cyber security compliance and governance, considering new regulations and best market practices, especially in the new context of increase in remote work, use of work from home and cloud. We participate in the Committee and guide our clients to prevent and respond to incidents.
Society is becoming increasingly data-driven and the use of Artificial Intelligence is at the heart of all innovation development in various sectors of the economy. These strategies demand a specialized legal support to assess and check for the legal feasibility of AI projects, considering the increasing use of chatbots, drones, machine learning, databases, as well as to check for issues related to the transparency and ethics of Algorithms.
We are always prepared to protect clients from new digital risks and threats, as well as from the effects of data use on legal and business demands. We have a team specialized in digital litigation, with technical and legal training to analyze electronic evidence in matters related to the LGPD (General Data Protection Regulation), to back everything from investigating authorship to fighting electronic fraud. When the incident occurs, it is critical to act quickly. Moreover, legal departments increasingly need to base their strategies on legal data to avoid new incidents and optimize the use of resources.
Communication strategies are increasingly more sophisticated and they need to use technology and data to innovate. To meet this need, we have a team specialized in the legal aspects of digital media use to provide legal support for our clients’ Marketing and Commercial Promotion actions in compliance with data protection laws.
We work providing legal advice for Democratic Digital Elections, with preventive actions and measures for risk analysis and crisis management. We take into consideration the need to comply with new regulations on Election Law and protection of personal data and the increased use of technology such as electronic ballots, biometric ballots, social media, agencies who work with fact-checking and fighting fake news.
