IT Law

Reliable partner in the digital transformation.

The changes in the economy due to digitalisation require partners with in-depth experience and industry know-how. From classic IT projects to outsourcing to the cloud: as a "digital law pioneer", DORDA has a unique track record in the IT project business. In addition to outsourcing and cloud projects with a focus on the regulated sector - from insurance companies and banks to pharmaceutical companies - we have also always advised SMEs and start-ups in all legal areas relating to digital products and services. This ranges from the drafting of T&Cs for webshops and platforms in e-commerce to SaaS contracts, maintenance agreements with IT service providers, or software, development, and licensing agreements. 

DORDA brings legal certainty to innovative business models around AI, blockchain, and other new tech developments. Based on years of experience in contract drafting and negotiation, one of our focal points is the drafting and revision of IT contracts in complex industries and projects.

Another focus is on preventive work or support in the event of cyber attacks. For this purpose, we are available 24/7 via our hotline

DORDA's IT team also forms the nucleus of the DORDA Digital Industries Group. Companies receive interdisciplinary legal advice in all IT and digitalisation matters. As a result, DORDA also has extensive experience in M&A transactions and in the suppor of start-ups in the IT sector.
