CompTIA Debuts Legal Help Desk for Its Registered Users

PRESS RELEASE — Downers Grove, Ill., March 23, 2016 – CompTIA, the technology industry trade association, today announced the immediate availability of the new InfoTech Law Advocates (ITLA) Legal Help Desk.

Staffed by licensed attorneys with broad experience in business and regulatory issues impacting technology companies in the U.S., the new online legal help desk offers channel partners immediate access to high-quality legal services for a low monthly subscription fee.

Available to all CompTIA registered users and offered at a dramatically discounted rate to CompTIA Premier Members, the new ITLA Legal Help Desk provides the day-to-day legal services channel partners need at a price they can afford, according to Dan Liutikas, managing attorney of ITLA and chief legal counsel for CompTIA.

“The average agent, solution provider or MSP doesn’t have the resources to retain a dedicated attorney they trust to manage the growing legal needs of today’s IT and telecom service provider,” Liutikas explained.  “Our new ITLA Legal Help Desk removes the barriers and puts trusted legal services within reach of channel partners for a price that can’t be beat.”{ad}

The CompTIA InfoTech Law Advocates (ITLA) program was developed to lower the barrier for technology solution providers to access high-quality legal services with pricing certainty on the day-to-day legal matters. It includes a legal help desk service staffed by attorneys with broad experience in business and regulatory issues impacting technology companies.

“ITLA is a unique and highly qualified legal firm that knows the ins and outs of an IT service provider’s business model,” said MJ Shoer, chairman of the CompTIA Board of Directors and chief technology officer, Internet & Telephone, LLC. “Dan and his team have been instrumental in the expansion and refinement of our company, and it’s exciting to see CompTIA expand ITLA and bring affordable, online legal expertise to channel partners doing business in the U.S.”

Three Flexible Pricing Plans for Channel Partners
The ITLA Legal Help Desk offers channel partners three distinct monthly subscription plans to choose from: Basic ($49), Pro ($99) and CompTIA Premier ($49). To help ensure compliance and better business practices, each plan includes electronic signature routing and cloud legal document storage.
