IT law

We advise companies in the fulfilment of IT-related legal directives, in ensuring continuous and consistent IT-security and in data protection law. We furthermore advise both providers and users when outsourcing IT or other business processes, in preparing and reviewing software and hardware contracts as well as cooperation and sales contracts for software and hardware.

Legal data and processes security

From the protection and security of individual domains through the advice concerning the launch and operation of online platforms to the drafting all the necessary contracts for web shops and cross-border e-commerce, our specialists are competent and experienced contact persons.

From a web shop to an e-commerce platform

Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force, new legal constraints apply, which pose new compliance challenges to all companies. We develop individual data protection concepts for our clients and review all steps in the data processing of customers and employees as well as in international data transfer.

“Big data” require smart solutions

With increasing digitalisation, issues of IT compliance, particularly data protection and data security, are becoming important in more and more fields of business. New technical options, e.g., the evaluation of large quantities of data, and the increasing networking of different objects and processes, commonly known as “Big Data” and the “Internet of Things”, require legally innovative, discerning concepts. Subject of our consulting work is the observance of all regulations in the IT law sector. We support and advise companies on all issues of recording, saving and the further use of communication and other data, the transfer of data to third countries and data processing by third parties.

The narrow line of optimum solutions

Technical and organisational demands on communication equipment, the review of security concepts, requests for information and the implementation of monitoring actions regularly pose questions for companies in the digital economy for which we develop legally sound and practice-oriented solutions and offer support in dealing with authorities.
