Digitalization is now shaping all areas of economic activity and is constantly presenting companies with new challenges. Automation, artificial intelligence, changing information and communication channels, and the use of big data have long been part of the business world and at the same time drivers for innovative digital business models and e-commerce.
Technology law deals with the legal aspects of all these trends and developments. In addition to topics such as intellectual property, licensing structures, data protection and cybersecurity, compliance and liability issues are also playing an increasingly important role.
At KPMG Law, we have many years of legal expertise and deep industry knowledge related to new technologies and understand the unique challenges that companies and institutions face in doing so. Therefore, we are your reliable partner for advice on all legal issues in this field.
Product piracy is a massive problem for companies in all industries.
With our many years of legal experience in combating product piracy and our integration into the international KPMG network, we are the ideal partner for you to enforce your claims anywhere in the world and to protect your products and their good reputation from plagiarists.
Special knowledge and tools are required to detect counterfeit products offered on the Internet and to analyze such sales structures. With a combination of state-of-the-art, intelligent technology, legal expertise and international presence, we offer you the best conditions for a successful fight against product piracy.
Data protection management systems are now indispensable in many companies due to the exponential growth in data volumes and processed data sets caused by ongoing digitization. We advise you on all data protection issues and support you in the design and implementation of suitable systems.
Our multidisciplinary solutions include:
Intellectual property is an immense asset for any company. Inadequate protection of one’s own intellectual property as well as overly careless handling of third party rights can pose significant risks of loss and liability.
With our DIN-based IP Risk Monitor Tool, we analyze all IP-related processes and decisions of your company. From the results of this analysis, we then derive possibilities and concrete solutions for risk minimization and show you measures for compliance-compliant IP behavior.
A proactive approach is essential to protect and preserve IP assets. We represent you in all IP and competition law disputes, especially in court. Thanks to our extensive experience in litigation, whether on the merits or on an interim basis, we can always provide you with full and prompt support.
Protecting and optimally managing your IP portfolio is a complex and time-consuming activity that requires the highest professional quality. We take on this task for you with our all-round service and in this way provide you with our many years of experience, our multidisciplinary knowledge, our excellent international network and state-of-the-art technology.
Our services include:
Intellectual property (IP) comprises the intellectual property of companies, such as technical inventions, databases, brands or software, and is therefore one of the most important intangible assets. The importance of IP law will continue to grow in the future as these types of assets become more valuable. We use the latest technologies and our international network to provide the best solutions to protect your company’s intellectual property at all times.
IT projects are often complex and can extend over a long period of time. It is therefore all the more important that they are carried out in a legally compliant manner.
With our many years of experience in drafting and advising on IT contracts, we have already successfully supported many IT awards and tenders. Complex IT and digitization projects in particular are an important focus of our consulting spectrum. Our expertise also includes state-of-the-art topics such as agile software development agreements and the use of artificial intelligence and blockchain technology, so that our clients are always best positioned for new business models in the areas of Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, e-business and platform models.
The number of patent applications and grants is increasing worldwide. This is increasingly a challenge for companies, as they need to have a constantly updated overview of the patent-protected technological environment in which they operate, as well as information about the IP rights of their competitors.
Our technology-supported analysis of worldwide patent databases always keeps you up to date with regard to new patents and thus minimizes the risk of property right infringements.
