Park Legal LLC is an Indianapolis-based law firm that assists clients in the areas of data privacy, security and records management. Unlike many other firms, our lawyers have decades of experience as in-house counsel as well as experience as regulators. We also have information security experts working side-by-side with us. As such, we offer a next generational approach to the practice of law by integrating technology into our operations and by providing materials to clients in a format that is business-focused and prioritized to address key risks. We also eliminate the use of multiple associates and generalists who are not fully immersed in this specialized and continuously evolving area of law—and who therefore may overlook critical factors in providing counseling to you, or increase your bills unnecessarily as you pay for their research and training.
We offer end-to-end services to our clients though an affiliated on-line training company and a software company, making it easier, faster and more economical for your organization to ensure a solid level of compliance. In addition, we collaborate with an international law firm with 21 offices across Europe and Asia, as well as external security experts in the U.S. and globally. These resources can be added as needed in a seamless, cost-efficient manner to provide full service to your organization.
