Artificial Intelligence (AI) adoption is growing as machine learning technology matures and generative products become more commonplace. AI offers many benefits, with a wide range of applications, but also carries with it risks and raises legal questions.

For many years, we have advised clients on how to buy, build or collaborate on AI solutions responsibly and effectively. We are market leaders globally in key related fields including intellectual property, data privacy and regulation.

We are also the only law firm in the world with real-life experience of deploying GPT-4 AI across 43 jurisdictions. 3,500 lawyers use Harvey in A&O. We have learned from our own experience how to manage the legal and regulatory challenges of AI adoption, from working with external software providers and InfoSec, to change management and ethics. With that practical insight, we can help you navigate the AI landscape with confidence. 

On this page, we will keep you informed of the key developments in AI regulation and other related areas.
