Many businesses establish their online presence by having a website, but do you know what the law says about the information you display and collect? How do you determine whether or not you’re complying with regulation?

Our guest today is Josh Clayton who runs a private practice in Shreveport, Louisiana, and he will discuss some of the things you need to know about collecting information. Josh studied accounting but decided early on that he was cut out for law, so he went back to school for a law degree. He started his career at McKernan Law Firm in Baton Rouge, worked at the Hammond law firm of Anderson & Boutwell, and had a brief stint at an oil and gas outfit in Shreveport. He hung out his shingles in 2008 and has been in private practice ever since.
