We regularly assist clients in relation to contentious and non-contentious matters before the Italian Data Protection Authority as well as in relation to litigation before national courts and arbitrators.
Over the years we have become the legal and strategic advisors of choice for global software houses and digital service providers. Most of our lawyers know life in tech corporations from the inside having acted as in-house counsels, which allows us to fully understand our clients’ needs and provide true commercial and strategic advice. As technology becomes pervasive and spills out into once-more-traditional sectors, we are increasingly assisting clients in the fashion, cosmetics, retail, manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries in relation to technology-related commercial agreements.
