Data protection is more important than ever and creates a unique challenge for every company. Regulators have recently reformed data protection law, setting new and high requirements for enterprises to comply with and tough penalties in the event of breach. Data protection has increasingly become the focus of attention and managing customer and employee data entail new risks. Data protection compliance constitutes one of the major risk-avoiding-strategies in companies. We support you in finding solutions for data handling in general as well as for Big Data applications in particular, in order to make optimal use of the new technical possibilities of digitisation.
Public Economic Law
The regulatory density has increased steadily in recent years, both in the regulated industries and in general. At the same time, the prosecution of violations – both official and private – are increasing significantly. We advise on all questions of public economic law and help to identify risks at an early stage. Together we develop legally secure and future-oriented solutions for your business. A key focus of our legal advise concerns the regulated financial services and healthcare industries.
Foreign Trade Law
We advise and represent both domestic export companies and companies from third countries in matters of foreign trade law. In particular, we advise on issues relating to the national legal framework (AWG and AWV) as well as the relevant European law (in particular the EC Dual-Use Regulation and embargo regulations such as Iran). We support our clients in connection with necessary permits and approvals of the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA). In addition, we advise on compliance audits under foreign trade law and on any necessary adjustments of business processes to legal requirements.
We represent your interests at all levels of local and international dispute resolution bodies, including state courts, national and international arbitration tribunals, in mediation and facilitation procedures.
