Understanding our clients’ underlying technical and technological ideas and objectives, while providing clear, concise and practical advice lies at the heart of our work. The phenomenon of convergence and the rapid proliferation of innovative services inspire our Information, Communications & Technology (ICT) team to continue to build unique expertise in a wide range of technology matters.
Our lawyers have particularly strong track record in commercial IT arrangements such as software licensing, call centre and hosting services as well as hardware procurement, online and e-commerce matters such as setting up web-shops. We also regularly advise on sector-specific regulatory issues concerning communications services such as licensing, interconnection and carrier-pre selection.
Our technology lawyers have been providing legal advice for a world’s leading IT services provider on information technology and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) agreements for more than a decade. We also boast one of the most experienced data protection and privacy teams in Hungary. Our transactional experience stands out as a significant number of M&A and private equity transactions handled by our corporate team require specialist technology experience.
