IT, data protection and media law
Carefully selected IT and software partners, as well as negotiating legally safe contracts that are suitable for your own needs is typically of existential importance to companies. We thus support not only companies such as IT service providers, software vendors and their customers in drafting tailor-made contracts, but cooperate with the professionals of BDO on request to help you select the right provider and, where applicable, to implement systems and software. In addition to this, we offer comprehensive legal support for outsourcing projects, complemented on request with the process know-how of the BDO experts.
Data protection is in the spotlight, not least because of the widespread public perception, awareness of customers and employees, and stricter supervisory regulation and sanctioning by the regulatory authorities, but also on due to liability for CEOs and boards in case of compliance violations.
We advise you in all areas of data protection based on many years of experience documented through numerous publications in scientific and practice-oriented media, and we assert your interests in dealings with national supervisory authorities and foreign security agencies. Our special expertise lies in risk-based analysis of existing data protection solutions, as well as drafting and negotiating of international rules on the handling of personal data within multinational groups of companies. In addition, we also benefit in this area from the IT expertise of our BDO consultants, helping us to not only develop the contractual aspects of a data protection concept, but also assist you in its implementation on request.
Consultation takes place in small teams that enable direct communication with all stakeholders, as well as a fast and cost-effective solution.
