Information and Communication Technology

Today’s businesses are developing new, efficient, and innovative ways of sourcing IT and communications products and services. ALTIUS’ ICT team has a wealth of experience in managing all the legal, regulatory and operational risks that you might face in this rapidly changing landscape.

Our ICT team is mainly focused on the following four practices: computer law, data protection law, internet law and telecom law.

While our first objective is to help you anticipate – and prevent – legal risks, we also have extensive ICT-related litigation experience, representing several clients in disputes regarding software contracts, ISPs’ liability, etc.

We assist hardware manufacturers, software and app developers, system integrators, e-commerce players, telecommunication operators and suppliers of other ICT-related services, such as cloud, outsourcing, consulting, support and maintenance services.

We take a hands-on approach, advising not just on the letter of the law, but also making practical, creative suggestions for you to consider. We assist you in assessing all the legal risks and helping you identify opportunities and capitalising on them.
