Digital business needs an understanding of digital opportunities and the specifics of this business. Whether you are on the client side and want to conclude contracts for IT projects and the use of hardware and software, or whether you offer digital products and services - we bring the enthusiasm and know-how for these topics with us.

Piltz Legal is the partner for all aspects of IT law, IT security law and data protection. With these areas of expertise, many years of experience and recognised specialists, we offer you an excellent portfolio for your digital business. With short response times and pragmatic solutions.

Especially in digital projects, legal questions arise very quickly and repeatedly in the course of the project. Data protection, contract law and, of course, specific IT law issues all come into play here - IT law is not a sharply defined area of law, but a multi-layered subject matter drawing on various specialist areas.

The projects of our clients are just as diverse. The classic B2C or B2B online shop, trading platforms and mobile applications such as apps are just as common as projects for IT integration or outsourcing or digital products such as software.

Piltz Legal accompanies you from the start in all legal aspects with advice, contract drafting, accompaniment in negotiations and, if necessary, also in out-of-court disputes or in court.

  • Advice and support for IT and eCommerce projects
  • Drafting and negotiating customised IT contracts
  • Licence agreements and user contracts
  • Drafting of GTC, data protection declarations and other legal texts
  • Advice on e-commerce / e-business law
