Areas of Law Description

Our areas of practice include:

- Industrial Property Rights, Copyright and Media Law

Intellectual property rights is an all-encompassing generic term for the Law on the Prevention of Unfair Trading practices (competition law) and the Act Against Restraints of Competition, the so-called Antitrust Law. The competition law is intended to regulate competition between market participants and promote free competition for tender. We advise and represent you nationally and internationally in all cases relating to industrial property rights, copyright and media law.

- Information Technology Law (IT Law)

You cannot divide Information Law or Information Technology Law into the traditional fields of “Civil Law, Public Law and Criminal Law“. Information Law/Information Technology Law is a classic subject that covers the full legal spectrum and therefore requires the ability to combine knowledge from different fields of law, detect similar structures and pick up on new legal developments. As certified IT lawyers we advise and represent our clients nationally and internationally in all cases relating to Information Technology Law (IT Law).

- Building Law and the Law Governing Architects

We advise and represent our clients in all cases relating to building law and the law governing architects nationally and internationally. It’s a fact that one can never rule out the possibility of disputes arising during construction projects, but legal conflicts are time-consuming and expensive for all parties. Our main objective is to avoid conflicts between parties as far as possible.
