FTC Defense

Have you received a subpoena or Civil Investigative Demand (CID) from the FTC? Then there’s no time to lose—call our experienced FTC defense lawyers now at (847) 580-1279. We’ve successfully helped clients stop, and even reverse, FTC enforcement actions!

Affiliate Marketing Compliance

We understand that in order to succeed as an affiliate marketer or influencer, you need to move fast and embrace new technologies—but an FTC lawsuit can tank your business faster than you can say “ROAS.”

  • Section 5 of the FTC Act
  • CAN-SPAM Act

  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • Restore Online Shoppers Confidence Act (ROSCA)

Starting an Affiliate Marketing Business

Properly registering a business is key to protecting your assets and minimizing your affiliate marketing taxes. Whether you want to create one LLC or several, or even form a business offshore, our attorneys can help!

Business formation services include:

  • LLC formation
  • C-corp formation
  • S-corp election
  • Offshore business formation
  • Customized operating agreement or partnership agreement
  • Trademark, copyright, and IP services
  • Ongoing annual report and registered agent services

If you’re not sure where to register your business or which entity is right for you, we’ll provide clear guidance for your unique situation.

Affiliate Agreements and Contract Law

A strong affiliate marketing agreement helps you maximize profits and minimize risk. Such an essential document should never be trusted to a generic template! Our affiliate marketing lawyers can create a customized Master Service Agreement (the template that all your contracts will follow), as well as negotiate individual affiliate marketing contracts.

Influencers, advertisers, and affiliate networks each have their own unique concerns when it comes to affiliate agreements. We’ve prepared and negotiated contracts on all sides, so we know exactly what you need to look out for.

We can also help with any other business contracts you may need for affiliate marketing, including:

  • Partnership agreements
  • Independent contractor agreements
  • Investor agreements
  • Licensing agreements
  • Asset purchase agreements

…and more! Contact us to get started.

Intellectual Property Law

As a content creator or advertiser, intellectual property may be your most valuable asset. We help you protect it! If you need help with copyrights, trademarks, licensing rights, or resolving an intellectual property dispute, our attorneys have you covered.

Terms of Service and Privacy Policy

The terms of service and privacy policy for your website can offer protection in the unfortunate event of legal disputes. As digital privacy becomes increasingly important (and increasingly regulated), neglecting these documents could leave you vulnerable to lawsuits.

Although cookie usage is typically included in your privacy policy, online marketers may wish to create a more comprehensive cookie policy for extra protection. Our experienced affiliate marketing lawyers can help with all of these essential legal documents!

“Extremely knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and understanding of my business needs for both legal advice and accounting/tax services.

I’m in the Ecommerce/Affiliate Marketing space, and their advice and depth of expertise in this area were exactly what I needed at the time.”

Mergers and Acquisitions: Buying or Selling an Affiliate Marketing Business

Asset Protection for Affiliate Marketers

Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, and Web3 Law

If you’re advertising any cryptocurrency projects, NFTs, or dApps, you need to be extra careful with advertising and marketing compliance. Crypto influencers can be sued by the SEC as well as the FTC, and the industry is under heavy scrutiny. Contact Gordon Law Group to avoid red flags in your crypto advertising!

In addition, if your business accepts cryptocurrency payments, we can provide full-service crypto accounting and tax services.
