Data Protection and Intellectual Property

Personal data and Intellectual property represent tangible assets to protect in the Information Society. The key to taking full advantage of new opportunities and developing more efficient and profitable work dynamics and relationships is continuous innovation followed by constant compliance with the law.

Our goal is to provide clients with these necessary instruments offering the flexibility that comes with experience. Our understanding of the client’s needs comes from our longstanding expertise in advising national and international clients of all sizes that operate in different business fields. 

Our specialised professionals periodically conduct and participate in studies, research and conferences on new legal developments and trends on Intellectual Property Rights, Information Technology and Data Protection. Thanks to that and our consolidated methods, we can provide our clients with tailor-made solutions with the least impact on the work processes and always in step with the time.
