Our TMT and Intellectual Property practices provide expert advice on the establishment of internet-based businesses in Greece, and on the legal issues relating to software development, data use and security, and the protection and exploitation of intellectual property. Often working beyond the frontiers of written law, our professionals help clients to anticipate and prepare for how the legal landscape will evolve, ensuring compliance and vigorously defending the ideas and technologies on which their success depends.
We also work with clients on contractual negotiations to support the sale or licensing of software, network solutions or online security and their legal obligations with regards to service levels, call centers, online tools, availability and security and privacy.
In today’s digital economy, all businesses are technology businesses in some way, and we advise clients across many sectors, from hospitals and healthcare to FMCG and auto manufacture, on issues relating to GDPR, confidentiality breaches and cyber security. We help them to understand and meet their obligations in relation to Greek authorities, including how to respond to investigations and limit the potential reputational and financial impact of any claims made against them. Working closely with our colleagues in Litigation & Dispute Resolution, we also help clients to identify and prosecute guilty or negligent parties where appropriate.
We have represented a number of technology companies in regulatory investigations conducted by the Hellenic Data Protection Authority (DPA) and the Hellenic Authority for Communication Security and Privacy (ADAE).
