McGuireWoods and McGuireWoods Consulting co-hosted a seminar on the economic impact of data centers in Virginia. Held in the Richmond office, the Jan. 29, 2020, event included a presentation from the Northern Virginia Technology Council on the recent release of its Data Centers Analysis.
The event attracted about 60 attendees, including industry leaders, state and local officials. Richmond partner Dale Mullen and MWC’s Tracy Baynard of Tysons and Preston Bryant of Richmond led the event.
Northern Virginia is the largest hub of data center activity in the United States, with tax benefits, incentives and proximity to D.C. making it a prime location for data centers. With a dedicated data centers team covering a number of practices and regions across the United States, McGuireWoods is at the nerve center of data exchange.
From the commencement of electronic data collection, through storage and security, the firm has provided guidance on best practices to companies across industries on how to manage the legal risks associated with data centers and collection. McGuireWoods’ data centers team works with the real estate, environmental, IP, data privacy, technology and tax practices, to name a few.
