IT law

We can provide you with comprehensive legal support in information technology law and IT outsourcing.

We can safely guide you through the world of IT law, from custom software development, the optimal configuration of software licencing conditions, the development and implementation of both small and key IT systems that support your business, through the configuration of optimal contractual conditions for the maintenance, support and development of your software, hardware and information systems, to solutions for specific problems like employment contracts with programmers and the storage of source code with a third party.

We can also provide you with all legal support relating to the outsourcing of part or all of your company’s IT department to a third party – IT services provider, including due diligence and issues related to the transfer of software, hardware, services and employees.
