Digitisation is one of the most important aspects of the strategic development of enterprises and authorities. Basically, digitisation has to do with how IT and new technology may contribute to creating business opportunities. As a consequence, many enterprises currently decide to digitise a major part – if not all – of their systems, data and business procedures.

An increasing number of enterprises are choosing to outsource parts or all of their IT operations, some with a view to focusing and improving their core business and others with the object of cutting down on resources, and when new business models, methods and relationships are developed, a legal assessment of risks, implications and compliance is often required. 

We can help
We advise both private and public undertakings on all legal aspects of IT agreements and on new legislation pertaining to digitisation. We have for a great many years advised customers and suppliers on all types of IT agreements. In addition to knowledge on the legal aspects we have accumulated profound technical understanding, which is key to drafting targeted and value-adding contracts.

Our advisory services include:

  • Outsourcing projects
  • IT and systems acquisition
  • IT and technology-based agreements
  • Procurement and RFP processes
  • Telecommunications
  • Licence and maintenance agreements
  • Hosting, storage, operation and cloud
  • Big data.

Due to our broad expertise we consider all aspects at all times, providing you with the best possible advisory services. We will work closely together with your enterprise to arrive at a solution tailored to your specific needs. You will get access to a wide range of legal skills in the areas of IT and digitisation, but just as importantly, you will meet in-depth understanding of your enterprise and the industry as a whole.

We often cooperate with lawyers in our other practice groups, for instance Data Protection, EU & Competition, Intellectual Property, M&A and Corporate Matters, Labour and Employment Law.
