As a member of our Commercial Practice Group, I support our clients in all forms of IT-related contract design. This includes drafting and negotiation of contracts, the support of corporate transactions and restructuring, as well as consulting on licensing issues and disputes. The aforementioned legal assistance mainly covers data-driven business models – such as Cloud, Big Data, AI and Open Source solutions.Within IT contract law, one of my focuses is on regulated and unregulated outsourcing. I support regulated outsourcing primarily in the banking and financial services sector by ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements – such as MaRisk, BAIT or EBA Guidelines. In this area I support both outsourcing financial institutions as well as IT companies that provide services within the scope of an outsourcing.Furthermore, I advise in all matters of data protection law, no matter whether they relate to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) or to industry-specific laws with special data protection provisions. For instance, I support our clients in structuring innovative tech products prior to market launch to be compliant with European data protection legislation.
