We operate as a sounding board to our clients in all parts of the IT area.

Our advice is based on legal specialisation, industry knowledge and technical understanding and experience from numerous IT projects. We focus in particular, as do our clients, on outsourcing, Cloud and the new technologies in relation to AI, IoT, robots, Blockchain and Big Data and the challenges and changes these technologies entail.

In recent years, we have advised both customers and suppliers of IT services and have been involved in considerable transactions in this area in Denmark. Our clients include private enterprises, public authorities, buyers and suppliers of IT services, software producers, etc.
