Alia Luria, Esq. works with companies ranging from newly formed starters to publicly traded corporations and provides transactional legal representation ranging from corporate transactions to matters of data law. As a former software engineer with experience in web-based application development spanning a number of industries, including the telecommunications, entertainment, and business-to-business services, she routinely advises clients on information security, privacy, information governance, intellectual property licensing, technology contracting, corporate transactions, software and data asset transfers, social media, and Internet-related matters.
As a founding member of the Data Law Practice at an Am Law 100 law firm, Alia was the co-architect of a privacy-related legal expert system designed to advise clients of their reporting obligations in the wake of a data breach. The system captured the legal reasoning of Alia and her colleagues and encapsulated it into a web-based interface assistant. This web application was developed in partnership with research partner Thompson Reuters and software company Neota Logic and was shortlisted for the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Award in the Collaboration in Innovation category.
Alia is also an award-winning science fiction / fantasy author and has represented other authors in the negotiation of their publishing contracts.
