Data are the natural resources of the future – and already are today

However, personal data are also of major importance in terms of the personal rights of the individual people concerned. That is why our legal system is establishing increasingly stricter standards for the protection of personal data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect on 25 May 2018, can be seen as just the latest high-water mark in this ongoing process. This marks the latest cut-off date after which data protection will become one of the key compliance issues for every company in Germany and across Europe.

Our lawyers advise businesses on all aspects of data protection, working closely together with our clients to ensure they are compliant with the GDPR, as well as with other legislation. In doing so, our main goal is to deliver pragmatic, yet long-term solutions. The specific areas of personal expertise of our legal experts mean that our main focus is on the areas of employee data protection and intersections between data protection law and competition and IT law.
