I am excited to announce the seventh practice team under our Digital Assets and Data Management (DADM) Practice Group. By focusing on capitalizing on innovations that maximize IP, data, and technology, this team advises on optimal strategies to accelerate business growth, pivot into new service lines, or fundamentally revamp business models.  Co-leading the Digital Transformation and Data Economy Team is Janine Anthony Bowen (Atlanta), Chad Rutkowski (Philadelphia), and Jeewon Kim Serrato (San Francisco).  Jeewon, Janine and Chad each bring different skills to the team’s leadership, enabling us to offer cross-practice support as our clients use new technology to drive innovation and revenue.

Digital transformation and data strategies can be incredibly critical in a post-COVID-19 world as companies are constantly shifting to adjust to new ways of operating and dealing with market disruptions.  More information about this practice team can be found here.  We will also soon be announcing a webinar series that will provide an overview of the service offerings.
