As digitalisation advances in all areas, legal requirements for companies in the use of information technology are increasing. This particularly affects regulated sectors such as finance or operators of critical infrastructures. We have the experience to implement solutions in sector-specific regulatory environment and, if necessary, have the ability to bring in additional specialists at ASD - for example, from Banking, Finance - to form a multidisciplinary interface competence. IT stands for innovative technologies. We are delighted to be part of new developments over and over again. We show solutions to operate information technology in the Cloud in future and to use Cloud Computing in a legally secure way. We guide complex IT projects as well as outsourcing ventures in accordance with regulatory requirements. We contribute a wide range of industry experience and a profound understanding of technology. We understand how software development according to the waterfall method behaves in contrast to agile development, or how the use of open source software (OSS) in comparison to proprietary software affects the legal design of contracts. We design contracts as practice-oriented and interest-driven manuals rather than legal obstacles that stand in the way of a successful project.
Digitisation has also entered the realm of public administration. We support this process and, amongst others, advise the business delegation of the IT industry association Bitkom in the negotiations of the terms and conditions of purchase for public sector IT purchasing (EVB-IT). We also regularly support IT service providers in their participation in public sector tenders in all phases of the project.
Even in the field of information technologies, conflicts arise every now and then. We therefore offer support in mediation and arbitration proceedings as well as in state court proceedings and in review procedures of public tenders. Our understanding of technology and our many years of litigation experience help us to make the complex problems of these disputes to be better accessible for the courts.
