Distribution systems and contract negotiations are often particularly complex in the IT sector. The attorneys working in the MELCHERS IT/Data Protection Practice Group provide comprehensive advice on the implementation and management of a wide variety of sales systems in the software and hardware sector as well as on the implementation and handling of complex IT projects.
Not only industrial property rights, antitrust and competition law and the special features of IT licenses play a special role here. Questions of data protection law are also of considerable practical relevance in the context of IT-supported collection, processing and use of personal data.MELCHERS advises companies on all questions of data protection compliance, taking into account the respective industry-specific requirements. Our consulting services range from the implementation of legal requirements for company organisation and the data protection-compliant project realisation -including transnational data transfers- through to representation vis-à-vis supervisory authorities and courts in the event of possible data protection infringements.
