The IT, telecoms and technology industries have undergone major changes in recent decades and are developing at a breakneck pace. This continuously changing, high-tech world drives how companies conduct their business, market their goods and services, structure their administration and carry out financial transactions. As a company's level of digitisation increases, so does the importance of the company's IT strategy and its role in supporting the overall business objectives. It is therefore important for companies to have a strategy for protecting their investments in technology and know-how.

IT strategy for legal and commercial issues

We help clients anticipate the legal and commercial issues that arise in transactions related to IT and telecoms and to identify strategies to address them. Given the commercial significance of IT today, it is important for companies to try to anticipate what needs may arise in different situations. At the same time, one also needs to take into account that conditions may change. It is therefore very important, when reviewing and negotiating contracts,to discuss issues such as liability, support and possible compensation. This is particularly true in connection with events that may affect operations and safety.
