DMC Launches Tech & Data Group

Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote, P.C., a national, full-service law firm, has added Tech & Data as a new practice group.

The group focuses on consumer data privacy regulation guidance, corporate compliance, data hygiene services, and FinTech. In addition, the group also guides tech companies on corporate formation and governance, as well as mergers and acquisitions and deal support.

“The creation of the Tech & Data group will augment the firm’s robust offerings to serve the needs of our clients,” said Jeffrey T. Wiley, Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer of Dickie McCamey. “We believe our attorneys offer the expertise to help our clients navigate the ever-evolving, international digital landscape.”

Dickie McCamey’s Tech & Data Group is chaired by shareholder Jason L. Ott. Mr. Ott works with tech companies on matters such as corporate formation and governance, regulatory and compliance, various M&A and deal support, and general business consultation. His clients range from tech startups to large tech companies. Over the past year, Mr. Ott has worked closely with second year law clerk Derrick L. Maultsby Jr.

“Pittsburgh has become a major center of innovation and entrepreneurship while growing a presence of capital in the tech space through the hard work and dedication of a community of talented people,” according to Mr. Ott. “We are excited to be a part of the vibrant conversation and continue building relationships to help our tech community develop and thrive far into the future.”

Both Mr. Ott and Mr. Maultsby have authored numerous articles and client alerts regarding data privacy regulation and tech regulation. They have been featured in CPO Magazine, IAPP, and other tech industry publications. The pair has conducted presentations addressing the trend of stricter global data privacy laws and their influence on the laws of the United States particularly in a post-GDPR global market.

This June, the Tech & Data Group will be collaborating with the Pittsburgh Technology Council to launch the “Tech Legal Clinic” to aid Pittsburgh companies and startups. The group also will be featured in the Pittsburgh Technology Council’s “State of the Industry” issue of teQ Magazine. Mr. Ott and Mr. Maultsby will be conducting a CLE with the Allegheny County Bar Association this September on the topic of compliance with the GDPR and other relevant privacy regulations.
