Software, text, photos, graphics or videos - you don't immediately think of legal problems? You don't have to - that's why there are specialised lawyers like me - I'm a copyright lawyer. And that's a good thing. Because "the rights" are not something you should just ignore.
Licence agreements, software development, data protection (GDPR), project agreements are all part of IT and software law. I can help you with your legal issues in these areas.
If you want to expand your business to Germany, I can help you comply with all the legal requirements. There are various consumer protection regulations that need to be complied with when trading online. I can help you set up a compliant web shop to avoid legal disputes.
When you start a business or a project, the question of trademark protection always comes up. I will be happy to assist you with the registration of trademarks in Germany, the European Union and Switzerland. I can also assist you with my experience in trademark disputes (opposition proceedings, injunctions, warnings and trademark monitoring).
I am a certified specialist lawyer for copyright and media law as well as information technology law.
Starting a business in Germany can be complicated. My job as a lawyer for IT law, Internet law, copyright law, trademark law, competition law and data protection law is to find practical answers to your questions and to sort out legal problems as quickly as possible. So you can focus on your work and your customers again.
If required, we can also provide and translate legal documents relevant to your business, such as contracts, terms and conditions or data protection policies in English and German. We also translate into other languages through our cooperation partners.
Of course, you want to know what a lawyer costs and what legal fees you will incur before you contact me and hire me as your lawyer. That's only fair. Cost transparency is an important basis for a good client relationship and is therefore taken very seriously by our law firm. A lawyer’s payment in Germany can either be calculated on the basis of negotiation fees or statutory fees. Negotiation fees usually apply for activities out of court, such as drafting of contracts, contract negotiations or advisory opinions. Negotiation fees can arise from fixed rates or hourly fees. Usually, a fixed rate will be the basis since this fulfils the client’s interests in most cases.
Your initial enquiry is free of charge. You will not incur any costs unless we have explicitly informed you of this beforehand. No costs will be incurred without your prior consent..
