How can we help?
We advise buyers and providers of IT services on all types of IT and telecommunications agreements. We have profound knowledge of the legal and technical aspects essential to exhaustive and value-creating contract drafting.

Our clients are Danish and international businesses, including leading IT and telecommunications companies, banks, providers of payment services and systems, consulting and outsourcing businesses.

Common challenges
Today, many businesses outsource all or parts of their IT operations; some wishing to focus on their core business, others to economise resources.

When outsourcing, telecom companies are faced with industry-specific legal challenges such as telecommunications legislation and personal data and consumer protection issues.

As a result, contracts concluded between a telecom company and its IT service provider must be regulated down to the very last passage.
