Technology and Digitalization

E-mobility, smart factory/energy, building information modeling (BIM) etc. – digitalization is advancing rapidly and does not miss any industry. The coupling of production and services as well as integration of customers and business partners in the business and value creation chains are already resulting in many new ranges of products and services. Rapid technological developments, which are increasingly leading to global networking and progress in the field of artificial intelligence, continue to lead to new, unforeseen areas.

The use of data is the central aspect of all applications. IT law and data protection are increasingly gaining importance. Our experts in the field of technology and digitalization accordingly work together in a wide variety of industries hand in hand with our IT and data protection specialists.

Who “owns” the data? Can declarations of intent be attributed to equipment that works autonomously? Who is liable? Our attorneys work on these and other issues in the era of Industry 4.0. At the same time, we are involved in developing the law, for example, as experts in the VDMA guideline “Data Protection with Industry 4.0”.
