He specializes in providing legal support to nationally and internationally active companies in complex IT and digitization projects. One focus of his work is legal advice on digital transformation, the use of new technologies (e.g. AI or Big Data & Analytics) and the introduction of innovative business models (e.g. data – and cloud-based products).
