Your business relies heavily on technology – and the attorneys at Barna, Guzy & Steffen are here to assist you as you navigate through a variety of issues related to intellectual property, data security, data privacy, technology and software, including:
Whether you are a business licensing software to customers, a company looking to improve your business with new software and services, or a business navigating the ever-changing landscape of privacy and data security, our team can guide you through the process. Companies in the computer and software industries need expert legal assistance to manage, license, and enforce their intellectual property rights. Business owners requiring the services of software programmers or the use of software need to understand where the risks and benefits of a particular contract lie.
Internally, your business needs to be compliant with a changing landscape of data privacy and security breach laws. Do your contracts protect you? Are you compliant with the laws that apply to you? Do you know what laws apply to your business, and are you properly using the data you receive? Do you have appropriate cyber liability coverage? Do you understand your obligations with respect to the storage and destruction of various types of data? Contact our team for assistance in these and other areas.
We are pleased to note that attorney Nicole R. Wiebold holds a Cybersecurity and Privacy Law Certificate from Mitchell Hamline School of Law, further enhancing the guidance we can provide to you and your business.

Listen to your Miranda Rights.
Request to speak with an attorney in private. Your Miranda warning will be read to you by the arresting officer. It is very important that you pay attention to every word of these rights.
If you are placed under arrest, the officer has most likely completed an investigation leading to the belief that there was probable cause that you committed a crime. At this point, the officer has made their decision. Do not think that you could say or do anything to change the officer’s mind.
Do not resist arrest. Resisting arrest could subject you to further criminal charges if you go too far. Additionally, your attitude toward the arresting officer, if negative or volatile, will be presented as supporting a guilty verdict. In general, juries do not react favorably to a person who fights with police and will most likely see this is as evidence of guilt.
If convicted, the prosecution could use any negative conduct to support a harsher sentence. In short, displaying aggressive behavior toward police will only cause trouble. Even if you are scared, angry, or are experiencing high anxiety, you must maintain composure and politely request to speak to an attorney in private.
The law firm of Barna, Guzy & Steffen offers dedicated attorneys who effectively and efficiently handle your legal needs with the highest level of professionalism.
