Technology is one of the most differentiating factors in promoting the competitiveness of all types of entities (both public and private). Successive innovations and increasing regulation, notably in relation to outsourcing relations, present constant challenges to sector entities (including tech companies, research centres and start-ups), lawmakers and regulatory bodies. Consolidation, convergence and virtualisation have become the watchwords of a sector defined by its competitiveness, bringing up questions related to copyright, industrial property, privacy and cybersecurity, and the increased litigation seen in this field.      

Our multidisciplinary team of lawyers specialised in technology provides top quality strategic legal advice on the use, development, protection, operation and contracting of technologies. We are actively involved in the sector’s leading associations, from IT outsourcing to data science, and in the debate on the regulatory, legal and tech strategy issues influencing these activities. We support our clients and their teams by providing legal assistance tailored to the needs of each project.

Our Technologies team, together with our Digital Frontiers team, have the legal knowledge and technical expertise necessary to design the best solutions in close cooperation with sector experts such as IT systems managers, engineers, researchers, and technology and management consultants. Our pragmatic approach offers a wider perspective on the relevant matters and allows us deliver results-oriented work.
