Currently, more and more companies have digital representation in the world. That is, companies that have a digital identity. Although this has brought with it new working methods and new possibilities or opportunities, it can also present certain risks. The use of digital technologies can sometimes be a risk to the reputation or honor of individuals, legal entities or companies, impacting the way they are perceived; that is, impacting their digital reputation and therefore their development possibilities. To respond to this situation, what is known as digital legal advice arises.
