What is IT law?
IT law combines all aspects of information technology. At the centre of IT law lie legal questions relating to software, hardware, media, competition law and the internet. These areas of law often overlap. We offer our clients comprehensive branch-oriented counselling services in
all legal questions relating to:
IT law (e.g. project agreements, distribution of software and hardware, licensing agreements, maintenance)
- Internet/ online law (e.g. defence against written warnings, information obligations, database law, data protection, industrial property protection)
- Media law (e.g. multimedia agreements, right to a statement, right to a picture)
Law on competition (e.g. admonishments to competitors, advertising law)
Why is IT and telecommunication law among our areas of practice?
We are familiar with the IT branch from our clients as well due to specialisation and vocational training of our attorneys. Attorney-at-law and graduate engineer Michael Horak, who has been handling cases relating to IT law for over seven years,
obtained his degree not only in law, but in electrical engineering (specialisation: information technology) as well.
Of course we are familiar with all technical terms and tricks of the trade. In addition we are highly experienced in presenting technical issues – especially complicated ones – in such a way that the actual technical problem can be easily understood and therefore honoured. We get to the core of
your concerns precisely and quickly.
