Are you planning to outsource individual applications such as ERP or CRM, the development of an IT project or the procurement of IT services?
Do your company’s data processing or data protection management not meet the legal requirements or do you have specific questions regarding these aspects?
Would you like to know how to optimally protect your intellectual property?

Information technology is developing at a rapid pace. This has the advantage that it allows you to continuously develop new processes, services and business models. IT and digitalisation offer great opportunities for your organisation, but, at the same time, also create high risks – a fact that is often neglected. New developments result in constantly changing requirements regarding the protection of intellectual property and regulatory guidelines, particularly on data protection.

PwC Legal answers your subsequent questions quickly and competently. We do not just limit our services to legal advice. Through our close cooperation with PwC we also offer you the necessary technical, commercial and organisational expertise at any time.
