Over recent years, data protection has increasingly become the focus of public attention. Ongoing digitalization is fuelled by data, and optimizing the use of new technical opportunities in collecting and analysing information is crucial to competitiveness. At the same time, fundamental reforms to data protection law have placed firm limits on the permissibility of processing personal data, set high requirements as to how companies organize their data protection, and threaten tough penalties in the event of legal breaches. Thus, data protection compliance constitutes one of the key risk avoidance strategies for companies.
As a full service law firm, we have for many years taken an integrated approach in advising German and foreign companies on data protection and its interfaces with all relevant legal areas, including IT, corporate, antitrust and employment law.
