My experience includes providing expert advice to clients on various aspects of technology and data protection law, in particular on GDPR and security issues, mobile commerce, ecommerce and data analytics. I have designed and run GDPR compliance programmes as well as provided advice on other complex GDPR issues to a number of major companies, including several DAX 30 companies. In this context, my focus has been on topical issues such as the Internet of things, big data, machine learning and AI. I also advise both providers and customers on the preparation and negotiation of complex IT agreements and projects as well as IT hardware manufacturers on issues of European and German product safety and compliance matters, including representation before market surveillance authorities. My extensive knowledge of the mobile apps sector further allows me to advise clients on all questions related to the app economy in a hands-on and effective manner. I frequently coordinate these issues with my international colleagues, a normal practice within our firm's international network that was recently supported by my three-month secondment to our London office.
