IT and new technologies

The development of the information society is strictly connected with the growth of businesses which support transmission, processing and storage of data. IT systems and new technologies are used not only to support business processes but have become an integral part of our everyday lives. Big data analytics, Internet of Things (IoT) and solutions based on artificial intelligence (AI), including machine learning and deep learning, are developing at a fast pace. New technologies are of interest not only to the private sector but also to public authorities, including cities, which increase their spending on smart city technologies.

The dynamic growth of the IT and new technologies’ sector requires the support of experienced legal professionals. For legal assistance in this area to be effective it needs to entail creativity and quickness in responding to market changes, since a model which constitutes a standard today, may turn out obsolete tomorrow. Flexibility is another key factor, because each individual project has its own character, which is determined not only by the type of the project but also by the requirements or the approach of the client.

GFP Legal offers comprehensive legal support connected with IT projects, regardless of whether such projects are implemented using the classic (waterfall) model or the agile approach. We assist in preparing and negotiating implementation agreements, license agreements, SLAs or infrastructure delivery contracts. We support on-premise implementations as well as cloud services (in particular SaaS). We offer comprehensive assistance with respect to personal data (GDPR compliance) and other information, including know-how transfers, confidentiality issues and trade secrets’ protection.
