IT law, data protection.

IT law is as important to companies as it is for the public sector. The reasons clients seek our legal advice include the introduction of new corporate management software, the amendment of existing service agreements to reflect changed requirements and the updating of commercial websites with respect to new developments in legislation or jurisprudence. In these scenarios we represent both users and companies from the IT sector, whether in connection with their everyday business or attached to larger IT projects.

We assist operators of online shops in all distance selling matters, from the development of the shop structure and ongoing advice in operation, right through to the conducting of legal disputes. One particular focus here is the establishment and ongoing revision of specific contractual terms for the e-commerce sector.

Data protection law is a key area for our IT law team. BROCK MÜLLER ZIEGENBEIN advises internet platform operators as well as companies from other sectors with respect to ensuring the relevant necessary data protection standards. In doing this, it is essential to consider the ever-expanding requirements connected to designing an IT environment which is compliant with data protection law. We also evaluate organisational operating procedures by means of interdisciplinary collaboration between employment law and IT law specialists.
