Internet Law Group is a boutique law firm representing corporate
victims of fraud committed over the Internet (phish, spam, malware,
botnet operations, online sale of counterfeit and pirated products,
online trademark infringement, etc.). For nearly a decade, ILG’s
founding partner, Jon L. Praed, has been
at the forefront of the Internet community’s
legal battle against online fraud.
Our practice is built on the
premise that Internet fraud is a "common enemy" of our clients. In
fighting this common enemy, our clients seek a common objective - to
reduce the impact Internet fraud has on their business.
We help our clients achieve this objective by collecting information
about acts of Internet fraud from across our client base and other
sources, using automated systems developed in-house. We trace the acts
back to their human source, using a variety of formal and informal
information-gathering techniques. Our clients hire us to increase the
intelligence of their own work, and to expand their view into the world
of cyber-fraud. Because of the efficiencies in our practice, most of
our work is performed under a cost-effective fixed monthly retainer, with
hourly rates applying to advanced work targeting specific fraudsters.
Our clients also appreciate and benefit from the strong privileges and
protections that flow from our role as private sector lawyers directly
representing private sector clients. Leveraging off all that we know,
we work with our clients to develop and implement effective offensive
actions (civil litigation as well as criminal referrals) that target the
major fraudsters victimizing our clients.
In a nutshell, our clients understand we know how to identify fraudsters
and understand they each benefit from appropriate sharing of information
about their common enemy, about themselves, and about their roles as victims
of Internet fraud.
