IT Law and Data Protection

 

In matters concerning data protection law we extensively advise German and inter-national clients on all questions (inter alia examinations of the permissibility of data processing, the preparation of documents and representation before the superviso-ry authorities). We conduct data protection audits of individual areas or of entire enterprises. In cooperation with our employment law experts, we advise on internal company data protection regulations.
