The UK's first internet lawyer, specialising in internet and social media law.
Yair Cohen is a partner at Cohen Davis Solicitors, an award winning UK law firm that specialises in internet and social media law.
Yair has been involved with the internet since 1997 – first as a web and e-commerce developer and later as a full time internet law solicitor. He is the author of the book ‘The Net Is Closing: birth of the e-police’, which examines the subject of internet policing from the eyes of victims of internet lawlessness.
Yair Cohen is up to date, well informed and has cutting edge advice and opinions on all matters internet and social media related and thus, is a regular guest on TV, radio and podcasts in the UK and around the world and features many on this blog. He also is a guest speaker at national and international conferences.
Since its inception, not only has Yair Cohen’s internet law firm won a number of awards, but more importantly, scores of groundbreaking rulings, setting legal precedents and making history.
As there isn’t a school to train in internet law, Yair has also created a unique in-house training programme, where both trainees and experienced solicitors who previously trained in other laws, are taught and mentored by Yair, to become the next generation of UK Internet Lawyers.
