Information and Communication Technology

Information and communication technologies (ICT) are at the core of businesses in almost all sectors of the economy. The members of the VISCHER ICT team combine a wealth of knowledge across the IT, telecoms and online industries with their legal competences. Clients include innovative ICT service providers but also corporate customers, particularly with regard to complex sourcing transactions.

The information and communications law team is equally familiar with the requirements for complex IT projects as well as with new areas such as Cloud Computing and ASP services. Clients include software providers, internet service providers, telecommunication companies and hosting providers. Where there are complex sourcing projects, the team frequently works on behalf of ICT customers. The range of services provided includes the drafting of contracts for all transactions associated with IT and telecommunications as well as representing companies in the courts and arbitration tribunals. The team has developed significant expertise in sector-specific self-regulation. VISCHER also provides regulatory services including political lobbying and negotiations with administrative bodies.

Together with the Private Equity, Venture Capital and Corporate Finance teams we advise software, internet and telecommunication companies as well as start-ups and investors in these areas, in matters of corporate law, finance and transactions, thus providing a comprehensive service from a single source.
