We advise companies from the IT and telecommunication industry comprehensively on legal and fiscal matters.

We assist companies in IT projects of all kinds, from planning to implementation and beyond, where required.
We show software developers legal options to effectively protect their software against copying on national and international level. If intellectual property is violated or such an infringement is asserted, our attorneys with technical expertise will represent your interests. A further emphasis of our activity lies on contract drafting. In drafting software license agreements, special skills and an eye for detail are necessary conditions for legally compliant results.
E-Commerce – (legally) safe is safe
Daily, new online stores are launching on the Internet and open their doors to customers – e-commerce has become a mass phenomenon. To offer products and services over the Internet promises to be able to reach a large group of customers at relatively low cost. But if you want to succeed, you should be legally protected. Ingenuous new entrepreneurs may have a rude awakening since legal pitfalls abound: the commercial operation of websites requires compliance with numerous statutory provisions, the violation of which may result in warnings from competitors. For additional information, please see internet law. If a company uses new systems of payment, it may need a permission according to the German Payment Services Supervision Law (ZAG).
Comprehensive and proactive advice
It is advisable to obtain legal counsel already in the planning phase, so that your company stands on a solid legal foundation from the outset. We advise aspiring online entrepreneurs, starting with the appropriate legal form for their company to tax matters and all kinds of contract drafting, such as for contracts with collaboration partners or in employment law, up to the requirements posed by Internet law. Even if you already do business over the Internet, you should have your site reviewed at regular intervals, because laws and case law are constantly changing. What is still permitted and lawful today may be contrary to applicable law tomorrow. By the way, our clients can rely on us notifying them if action is appropriate.
