Digitisation and data protection

Digitisation, big data, cloud solutions, innovations and eGovernment – we support you in the lawful handling of personal data

Data protection law is becoming increasingly important. Companies, institutions and authorities process millions of personal data every day. The risk of fines, warnings and situations of crisis has increased following the Europeanisation of data protection law. Every instance of data processing – whether data from consumers, citizens or employees – requires careful examination. Businesses and individuals are facing new challenges: do planned innovations comply with new data protection laws? How react to possible data protection infringements? What does good internal data protection compliance look like? We believe that sound advice and an appropriate representation of our clients’ interests lead to good results. Our team features specialists from across the firm’s other practice areas, such as Compliance, IT, Press and Media law, to deliver integrated advice at the highest level, even in situations of crisis.

Areas of focus include:

  • Planning and implementation of digital business models
  • Advice for corporate and official data protection officers
  • Conducting procedures against supervisory authorities
  • Litigation in all national and European courts
  • Competition disputes, e. g. formal notices
  • Regulatory offences and criminal proceedings


Companies, institutions, start‑​ups, associations and federal and state authorities – a wide variety of clients place their trust in us in all questions of German and European data protection law. We have represented our clients in ground‑​breaking court proceedings, including before the European Court of Justice. Our Data Protection team provided specialised legal advice on the introduction of new business models and eGovernment projects, the auditing of entire corporate groups and on how to handle situations of crisis. To date, 10 attorneys and paralegals are working together closely in coordinated, and highly specialised teams in the various offices of our firm.
