Business and society are changing constantly - driven in many areas by research and development of new technologies. Technical innovations force the legislator to continuously adapt existing legal conditions to new circumstances, leading to new case law. Our lawyers specialising in IT and data protection law have been helping companies and the state sector for years to cope with the legal challenges they face in this highly dynamic environment - not only in a purely advisory role but also by providing tailored training sessions and in court and arbitration proceedings. Understanding the technical aspects of the client's requirements and taking internal processes into account is essential for the clear structuring of contracts and processes. Besides drafting and negotiating IT project and software agreements (outsourcing, licencing, development, maintenance and service agreements, open source), we also provide advice on e-commerce and multimedia law including legal aspects of social media. Another focal point of our activity is data protection and data security law. The ever-increasing networking of systems across company and state boundaries and tighter legal requirements at European and national levels are forcing companies and authorities to verify legally compliant handling of the data of employees, citizens, their customers/suppliers and other parties affected. We advise and support our clients in identifying the necessary adjustments to their processes and existing contracts.
