IT Law

Information technology law ("IT law") concerns the large area of software, hardware and data processing, which is developing and changing faster than almost any other area. It is therefore easy to lose track here. We offer you sound advice and support you in all legal matters relating to your IT, including contract review and drafting, licenses, hosting and, last but not least, cybersecurity, to ensure that your IT business practices are legally sound and protected from malicious interference.

Our specialties

Cloud computing

Cloud computing provides IT resources and services over the Internet, enabling your company to access storage, computing power and applications in a flexible and scalable way. We help you with specialized legal advice by reviewing and drafting contracts including service level agreements, assessing availability and security risks and ensuring that you do not experience any nasty surprises with hosting, either as a provider or as a customer.

Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is essential today to protect your IT systems as well as your company and customer data from hacker attacks (malware, ransomware, denial of service, etc.) and data breaches and thus maintain the trust of customers and business partners. We provide you with targeted legal support by developing security concepts and compliance strategies, reviewing process chains and areas of responsibility as well as liability traps and helping you to deal with cybersecurity incidents (e.g. enforcement of and defense against claims for damages, coordination with insurance companies, measures for effective reputation protection).

E-Commerce

E-commerce continues to grow, and in many sectors more goods and services are bought and sold online than in bricks-and-mortar stores. In addition to the many advantages, however, the risks and specific requirements of online retail must not be overlooked. We can advise you in detail on issues such as the correct design of your online store in terms of data protection and consumer law, questions regarding copyright and usage rights to images and texts used by you and smooth business transactions with customers and payment service providers.

Software development

The development of customized software is not an easy undertaking and, depending on the chosen method (“waterfall” versus “agile”), requires patience and the committed cooperation of many participants from both sides. We are at your side and draft tailor-made contracts to help you successfully implement your project. We pay particular attention to the precise regulation of service content and deadlines, the structuring of rights of use and the clarification of warranty and liability claims.

Software and hardware sales

Nowadays, software and hardware are distributed via a variety of business models, from traditional forms such as purchase and rental to the increasingly popular “as a service” constructions (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS). If you are an IT service provider, we can help you find the right legal arrangements for you and work with you to draw up customized contracts. If, on the other hand, you use IT services as a customer, we check existing and new contracts for any weaknesses, unbalanced liability rules or disadvantageous pricing and termination provisions, among other things.

Public procurement law

Public clients also need IT services. The digitalization of administration and justice is the order of the day. From the outset, we ensure standardized procurement management and are involved in drafting the tender documents, including the necessary contracts. However, we have special expertise in the purchase of IT services. We customize EVB-IT contracts and provide support in designing them in a way that makes sense for the project. We represent you in review proceedings in the event of disputes regarding the legality of the invitation to tender. During the execution of the contract, we are at your side, be it in the event of non-fulfillment of services owed, the request for change requests or in dealing with defects. We also provide legal support for contract extensions and order changes during the contract term.
