Core Values

Early Adoption of Technology in Law

Our team includes nationally-recognized leaders in data breach response and cybersecurity and privacy law, as well as former federal regulators, former in-house counsels of international companies, tech entrepreneurs, business owners and public–company executives. Our lawyers and technology specialists help you grow your business and achieve strategic objectives, adapt to new technologies and regulations, identify and reduce risk, and manage the response to data breaches, cybersecurity incidents, privacy matters and other crises.

Women Owned Business

Beckage is committed to advancing women in law and technology. Beckage is majority owned and managed by women, and the advancement of women and minorities in the practice of law is a Firm Core Value. We actively recruit and refer work to women and minority-owned businesses, working to make the legal industry a more inclusive and diversified field.

Customized Fee Philosophy

We work for you and want to add value to your business.  Generally, we believe that the billable hour model is outdated, obsolete and incentivizes work of little value to the client. We have the flexibility to work with clients on pricing structures that reflect our value and promote their satisfaction. We invite you to consider whether one of the following fee arrangements may be right for your business:

  • Monthly Retainers & Subscription Services

  • Flat Fees & Project Rates

  • Blended Rates

  • Success Fees

Supporting STEM

Beckage attorneys include technology leaders, advanced science degree holders, tech company founders, and start-up board members, so we understand the importance of promoting Science, Technology, Engineering & Math in the next generation of female leaders. We are dedicated, as individuals and a firm, to increasing the number of girls and young women pursuing STEM education and careers. To this end, Beckage has made charitable contributions to many organizations throughout Western New York, including a donation to UB School of Management's Girl Tech Day 2019 as well as to WNY STEM Hub's "Girl's Coding Project," and volunteering at the WNY Regional Science and Engineering Fair.  Additionally, Beckage designated WNY Stem Hub as the recipient of a $1,000 grant from Lake Shore Savings Bank.

Thought Leadership

Testimonials & Awards

“Jen Beckage is one of the brightest, most talented people that I’ve had the pleasure of working with for the past 20 years.  Through her diverse and considerable history I owning and operating technology companies, achieving her law degree and in finally combining both of these expertise in becoming a top technology and cybersecurity expert, she has shown not only her ability to decipher and understand highly technical subjects, and then discern and communicate the core issues, needs and solutions to both technical and non-technical people is in a class by itself.”

Chief Technology Officer of Data Recovery Service Company

“Jen Beckage is my first call whenever there is a suspected security incident. Her background in technology - specifically in the first and largest Dot Com in Western New York, now a public company, and subsequent entrepreneurial tech firms - allows us to immediately addresses the issues at hand instead of translating IT speak to legal terminology. She has a natural ability to fuse the technical IT challenges with the legal requirements and communications both in a way that is understandable to those under high stress situation.”

CEO of an Information Technology and Services Company
