Today‘s technologies offer great opportunities for businesses to capture, use and transfer personal data worldwide. However, they also raise the issue of both legal and business-related risks linked to non-compliance with local data protection regulations such as the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DS-GVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) in Germany.

Businesses are thus bound to adapt their systems and processes to local data protection requirements if they are to avoid liability risks. This is especially true of data-intensive Industry 4.0 and IoT business models.

We advise businesses and large corporations alike in all legal aspects of data protection.

Our objective is to develop conclusive and practical data-protection-compliant concepts for businesses.

We have a highly experienced team combining business and technical knowledge with expertise in local data protection laws.

An integral part of our practice is to keep abreast of the latest legal developments, the official positions of supervisory authorities as well as best practices. Our services to you include:
