Providing information technology advice requires sound legal knowledge, experience, technical expertise and a willingness to search for creative solutions. With years of practical experience in handling IT law matters, our lawyers have this comprehensive expertise. We speak the language of our clients and know what really matters when it comes to complex IT contracts and troubled projects. We advise in particular on drafting and negotiating IT contracts (projects, outsourcings, carve-outs, cloud computing, SaaS, data maintenance, software or source code escrow), e-commerce and Internet law issues, questions of data protection, as well as troubled IT projects, and represent clients in IT litigation and arbitration.
Internet domain law is another important focus of ours. We regularly represent clients in domain name disputes, working on landmark supreme court decisions, such as for the approval of two-letter domain names in Germany (vw.de) – thereby contributing significantly to relevant case law in this area.
Our data protection activities focus largely on compliance issues. We advise domestic and foreign companies on the observance of data protection requirements, assist in devising corporate privacy policies, and draft and negotiate data protection agreements, such as those for commissioned data processing and the remote maintenance of IT systems, but also for the use of software and the transfer of data to telematics systems, or on drafting online privacy policies.
