The digital legal challenges our clients face hold no secrets for our TMT team

The DSM strategy includes the following fields:

  • Data protection
  • Robotics
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Telecommunications
  • Copyright & Media

The stakes at play are high. Should the giants of tech be afforded the freedom to develop and expand their business or would it be preferable to apply the brakes for the sake of our privacy? The debate this question has sparked is at once complex and sluggish, as perfectly illustrated by the laborious process leading up to the realisation of the e-privacy Regulation - which was supposed to have come into force at the same time as the GDPR. Similar debates pervade the Robotics and Artificial Intelligence arenas. Where copyright is concerned, the EU is trying to strike a balance between optimal consumer access to content and the protection of copyright owners.

The digital legal challenges our clients face hold no secrets for our Technology Media & Telecom sector specialists.

That the members of our IP, IT and Privacy Team have comprehensive knowledge of the TMT sector goes without saying. TMT issues often require an integrated approach and people with different sets of expertise pooling their know-how. Examples abound: the development of Smart Buildings, the deployment of Artificial Intelligence by governments, the regulatory aspects of Fintech developments, and the restrictions on data usage imposed by competition law.  Lawyers working on M&As will find specialist sector knowledge indispensable as well. Boasting a wide-ranging team of sector specialists from different legal backgrounds, AKD is able to provide the legal advice and assistance you need.
