Dentons is the world’s largest law firm, delivering quality and value to clients around the globe. You probably don’t automatically associate the law firm with autonomous vehicles. But autonomous vehicle technology and legislation is a hot topic that Denton’s is passionate about.
Last year Dentons launched its Driverless Commute blog geared toward the latest news and analysis on the autonomous vehicle (AV) industry. Authored by Dentons’ Autonomous Vehicles team, the Driverless Commute interprets emerging innovations and implications facing the AV sector.
It is an extension of a popular, long-running weekly email digest of the same name that will allow for a more nimble publishing of legal and policy analysis of the fast-changing automated car landscape. It also provides insightful analysis of the current regulatory environment, monitors public perception of AV technology, covers the global race to market, and highlights pilot programs, including shuttle buses, package delivery vans, robo-taxis, shared-fleet vehicles, truck convoys, and row-cop tractors.
Leveraging the Firm’s experience serving the automotive, technology, and renewable energy sectors, Dentons’ Autonomous Vehicles team was launched to act as a source for companies navigating the rapidly evolving landscape of laws and regulations relating to the development and deployment of AV technology. Dentons’ Autonomous Vehicles team is made up of attorneys and professionals from across the Firm’s Public Policy, Corporate, Energy, Litigation, Insurance, Intellectual Property, and Venture Technology practice group.
Eric Tanenblatt is the Global Chair of Public Policy and Regulation of Dentons, the world’s largest law firm. He also leads the Firm’s US Public Policy Practice, leveraging his three decades of experience at the very highest levels of the federal and state governments.
