Technology revolution implies more than understanding technical aspects of changing tech environment. From Artificial Intelligence to Blockchain, the legal part of a tech business is equally important. We support our clients with legal advice around the entire chain of industry 4.0, inter-networking of things and big data, on designing and negotiating contractual frameworks for complex IT transactions, licensing models and transactional due-diligence.
Intellectual Property/ Digital Media
Intellectual property is where imagination meets law and we value our clients’ work and rights. Intellectual property rights are important assets for our clients, a good-managed IP portfolio being a business competitive advantage. We do our best to protect our clients’ intellectual creations at each stage of business from the early planning stage (starting companies, developing new services and products etc) to the more mature stages, by offering together with our partners, internationally certified and well-regarded Patent & Trademark Attorneys, the full range of IP services. Advising and training decision makers and R&D teams on IP strategy and Know-how protection mechanisms complements our forward-thinking IP law practice.
Data Privacy & Cybersecurity
Data Privacy is important for any individual and business and proper handling of specific aspects of data privacy and cybersecurity may lay down to a real challenge for our clients. Whether our clients activate in industries relying on big data and analytics such as banking, pharma, retail, transportation or any other sector, personal information is increasingly an indispensable business asset.
We offer support on data privacy compliance programs and audits, our team being experienced and agile in identifying the best approach for the prevention of data or cyber incidents, or for responding to an incident in a timely and legally compliant manner.
I have worked closely with Cristiana for 2 years coordinating together the CEE IT\IP Practice of an international law firm, working together on several complex cross border projects involving data protection and technology law.
I have always considered her to be very diligent and knowledgeable in technology law, while constantly being alert and trying to stay on track with industry changes and legal implications. She works hard to develop efficient working relations with her team and with all parties involved in a deal, while constantly aiming for providing first-rate advice in the best interest of her clients.
With her comprehensive knowledge of international data protection and technology laws and determination to get the deal through she is definitely an asset to have on your side in any project.
Of Counsel / Advocate | Squire Patton Boggs
We've been working with Fernbach & Partners on GDPR projects for a while now, engaging a lot of different customers together in a joint-venture format, covering both legal & technology. In all those interactions, one thing became clear right away: if you want someone who understands both "legalese" and tech, and you want all of that translated for you into plain language, Cristiana and her team are your best bet.
