Information technology

We feel right at home in uncharted territory

At Spirit Legal LLP, we believe that good legal advice is based above all on an understanding of the underlying facts. This is especially true for the broad area of information technology, because it often entails entering ‘uncharted’ legal territory. Apart from specialising in trademark and competition law online, we also have our finger on the pulse of other internet-related areas. Our areas of expertise include:

  • Software development, software licensing and software distribution agreements
  • Copyright in web development and communication design
  • Information requirements, data protection and advertising in mobile apps
  • Warranty and liability of service providers
  • Legal security aspects of IT infrastructure and networks, such as virtual private networks (VPNs), peer-to-peer networks (P2P) and darknets
  • Advice on choosing and implementing data encryption tools
  • Litigation and arbitration, especially in cases of personal data breaches, liability for defects and copyright infringement

In addition to individual programmers, developers and designers, we advise businesses from various sectors. It doesn’t matter whether the main activity itself is founded on information technology or the focus is on IT issues for day-to-day operations.

The Leipzig-based law firm Spirit Legal LLP advises domestic and foreign businesses with an international focus. Our core consulting expertise is in the areas of e-commerce, corporate, competition, trademark, IT and data protection law. When it comes to legal matters, our industry experience makes us the ideal specialists for start-ups, travel companies and the hotel industry.
