Due to the many new, parallel and disruptive technologies, all enterprises are forced to keep up to date of developments and rethink their processes and business models. Industries and markets are changing at a pace never before seen, as a consequence of the explosive technological development, digitisation and disruption introducing new business models, perspectives and possibilities for growth.

Due to the many new, parallel and disruptive technologies, all enterprises are forced to keep up to date of developments and rethink their processes and business models. Industries and markets are changing at a pace never before seen, as a consequence of the explosive technological development, digitisation and disruption introducing new business models, perspectives and possibilities for growth. 

The financial industry is an example of an industry where Fintech changes the development and provision of financial services. The same can be seen in the IT, technology and media industries, which are undergoing tremendous change and seeing new possibilities and challenges, e.g. new forms of distribution, increased globalisation and competition. Drones, driverless vehicles, industrial robots, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), block-chain, etc., are being incorporated into development and production at most enterprises today.

We can help
Our legal advice is based on a high level of legal specialisation and technical understanding of the technological development. Among other things, we provide advice to IT enterprises on the understanding and application of the new technologies, including to start-ups on establishment, financing and cooperation. We also provide advice to some of the global players on the legal challenges and changes their various industries are facing and have particular insight into this area through our connections to Silicon Valley and our membership of Bridge Denmark. We advise players in all parts of the value chain, including buyers, suppliers, developers and distributors of new technologies.

Our advice naturally encompasses “the eight essential new technologies”:

  • Internet of Things (IOT)X
  • Augmented reality
  • Virtual reality
  • Blockchain
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning
  • 3D printing
  • Drones
  • Robots.

Our expertise means that we consider all aspects while adding value and being straight to the point. We will work closely together with you and your enterprise to arrive at a solution tailored to your specific needs. You will get access to a wide range of legal specialist skills within new technologies and the legal challenges they bring about.

We often cooperate with the lawyers in our other practice groups, for instance Compliance, Data Protection, M&A and Corporate Matters, Media & Entertainment, IT & Digitisation.
