IT, IP & Data Protection

Our team provides legal advice in all matters related to IT, IP and data protection (privacy) law with particular focus on the TMT sector.

We understand that different clients require different working approaches. Being a boutique law firm, we can offer the very much needed flexibility suitable for your needs.

If you are a CEO or a founder of the firm, we will not bother you with legal terminology, detailed reporting and a large number of possible alternatives (unless you want it, of course). We understand that you need fast responses, actionable solutions and full project management so we are ready to do just that.

On the other hand, if you are a Head of Legal, we are ready to support you in achieving your goals with in-depth expertise that may be not present in your in-house department, a number of possible alternatives to evaluate their fit with your corporate strategy as well as explicit reporting of completed tasks.
