Technological revolution is creating opportunities , new business models are emerging, and organizations are changing constantly in order to manage, protect and successfully exploit data as the electronic gold. This results in complex technical, legal and regulatory questions, not least due to changing and increasing regulation in Switzerland and abroad, which requires an interdisciplinary team of specialized and experienced lawyers to help keeping up with the arising challenges, managing information and mitigating risks.

Our extensive experience, expertise and proven track record in data protection, professional secrecy, technology, media and telecommunications matters make us the ideal partner for our clients in contentious matters (dispute resolution), non-contentious matters (advice, incl. on privacy, security and employment-related policies, transactions and compliance (data processing, impact assessments, consents and cross-border transfers), implementation and transformation projects) and urgent matters (e.g. assistance in dealing with customers, regulators and the public during and in the aftermath of a cyberattack). 

Our (national and international) clients range from innovative start-ups to listed companies and leading technology companies.
