IT Law & E-Commerce

IT services continue to grow in importance in work and production processes today. For years e-commerce has been the only retail distribution channel offering the prospect of significant long-term growth.

IT service providers and enterprises are thus constantly having to confront new technological, business and legal challenges. An ever-changing legal framework, largely in connection with European Community law, creates a need for considerable advice, and contracts structured for dynamically improved business models. In addition to specific legal know-how, to successfully advise in this area it takes a deep understanding of these markets from a commercial and technology standpoint.

We employ this integrated approach in advising clients on the full spectrum of IT and e-commerce law issues, as well as related intellectual property (IP) issues.

Advising on and contract structuring for any sort of outsourcing projects is a primary focus, as well as classic IT services (software licenses and development, hosting, application support, hardware and software operation, consulting, systems integration, etc.).
