Digitalization & Data Protection

The steady advance of digitalization affects innovative and traditional business models alike. Legislation and case law struggle to keep pace with rapid technological development. The result is increasingly complex regulations which in turn challenge companies even further.

Our experts keep abreast of applicable regulatory requirements and upcoming legislative proposals to advise you comprehensively and pragmatically. You benefit from our support in drafting software development and licensing agreements, open source compliance, and terms of use for platforms, IoT, SaaS and other cloud services, databases, apps and online stores. Regardless whether your software project is in calm or stormy waters, we remain the reliable partner at your side.

Thanks to years of experience in patenting artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), we deeply understand the underlying technology, a critical factor in counselling success.

In a networked world, cybersecurity and defense against cybercrime are vital. We also support you in implementing planned regulatory requirements, advise you on the forward-looking design and monitoring of your products, and ensure that any security incidents are followed up.

Thriving innovation has raised many questions about data protection, even before the GDPR. Our comprehensive support aims at helping you to develop and implement a coherent data protection practice, including documentation, notice and contract texts. If a data protection breach has already occurred, we take over communication with supervisory authorities and affected parties and represent you in court.
