December 20, 2023
Online tool helps businesses navigate the latest regulation governing digital businesses in the UK and EU.

Latham & Watkins has launched the Tech Regulation Portal, a new online hub that provides convenient access to the latest laws and regulations governing digital businesses and content providers operating in the UK and European Union (EU).

The introduction of multiple new UK and EU laws designed to safeguard and balance the interests of consumers and businesses has created a complex patchwork of separate regulations. The Tech Regulation Portal summarizes the key topics and legislation relevant to B2B and B2C businesses operating across a variety of industries — such as entertainment and media, financial services, and healthcare and life sciences — to help manage increasing risk and complexity.

Key topics covered by the portal, include:

  • Harmful content or products
  • Advertising
  • Geo-blocking
  • Transparency requirements
  • Comparison tools and rankings
  • Contract requirements
  • Pricing practices
  • Consumer protection 
  • Data protection

“As governments modernize existing frameworks for the innovation age, digital businesses and companies with digital platform models will need help navigating these numerous and diverging legal regimes,” said Gail Crawford, partner and Global Chair of Latham’s Data & Technology Transactions Practice and Co-Chair of Latham's Privacy & Cyber Practice. “Our new Tech Regulation Portal is designed to help businesses operating in the UK and EU successfully navigate this highly fluid regulatory landscape.”

“Europe continues to see a step increase in its regulatory enforcement of digital businesses,” said Elisabetta Righini, Antitrust & Competition partner at Latham & Watkins in Brussels. “Latham is at the forefront of this regulatory change, supporting clients to navigate the so-called 'Brussels Effect' while they continue to innovate.” She continued, “Our Tech Regulation Portal has been developed by Latham lawyers who have deep EU and UK regulatory knowledge. It provides a clear and user-friendly first point of call for digital businesses attempting to navigate a complicated web of rules and regulations with important strategic ramifications.”
