How can we help?
Lancaster Tech Law
Law doesn’t have to be overwhelming.
Technological advances impact businesses in every industry, creating a more competitive, dynamic, and interdependent marketplace. The best way to navigate this new frontier is to work with an attorney who understands the digital nuances of modern law.
At Lancaster Tech Law, we find efficient, tech-savvy legal solutions for small to mid-sized businesses and individuals alike in and around central Pennsylvania. We make the law easier to navigate by encouraging cloud-based communication, eliminating friction points that make it more expensive or burdensome, and promoting vanguard thinking to improve the way it works.
Our law firm represents clients across multiple industries, including:
- Big data
- Cloud computing
- Financial services
- Higher education
- Media and Entertainment
From data protection and privacy laws to business transactions and commercial litigation, we are the informed choice in business and technology law.
I’m not a tech company. Are your services for me?
We work with tech and non-tech companies alike. Business and civil litigation, which is where we primarily practice, can affect any kind of entity. And no matter what industry you’re in, we use technology to make the legal work we do for you faster and more efficient.
If you are dealing with tech-specific issues—like a data breach, online harassment, eDiscovery, SaaS agreements, or website policies—we can help you understand and navigate the world of digital law.
How can having a technology law firm help me?
We take the modern business features you love from working with other industries and apply them to the law (which tends to update at a slower pace). With LTL, you can save time by self-scheduling your next appointment (virtually or in-person). Through our secure online portal, Smokeball Communicate, you can also view and send documents, pay your bill, and even text us your questions.
As a primarily paperless office, we also strive to find ways to continually improve our practice in the background, creating forms to encourage automation and utilizing advanced document generation tools.
Do you bill the same way as other firms do?
Not always. We understand that clients aren’t one-size-fits-all. You will have different issues, timing needs, resources, and personal preferences than anyone else. So, we give you different ways to pay to choose what works for you. Instead of 1 option, we have 3.
We offer easy-to-budget task-based, à la carte solutions so you’ll always know what you’re paying before you pay it. You can also go on a subscription plan and use our services as much as you want without the fear of getting charged every time you call or email. And of course, if you’re a fan of the billable hour model, we’re happy to do that too.
With LTL’s options, you are in control of how you want billing to work.
Navigate the law with clarity and ease.
