IP and IT law, Data Protection Law

In the fields of intellectual property and information technology, the law is diverse but tightly interconnected. The major challenge in the field of IT is to produce service and maintenance contracts in accordance with detailed copyright legislation. In part because of the duration of such agreements, opt-out clauses assume particular importance. 

In the field of IP, we carry out trademark registration, brand management, research and development agreements and patent licensing. We bring extensive knowledge of trademark law, patent law and EU regulations such as the Technology Transfer Block Exemption (TTBER).

In the event of dispute, we act quickly in helping to put an overall strategy in place at an early stage, offering speedy and beneficial solutions to our clients.

Data Protection Law

We advise companies on all aspects of data protection law and represent our clients before public authorities.

The times when data protection law was seen as "dead law" have passed. Not least due to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will apply as of 25 May 2018, the time for companies to take active Action has come. Not only are obligations on companies going to be expanded, but fines are also going to be increased considerably (Up to EUR 20 Million or 4% of the annual worldwide turnover).

We Review the legal permissibility of your data applications and ensure that your company complies with national and international regulations.
