Digitalisation (or computerisation) is one of our law firm’s long-term specialisations, due to its constantly increasing importance as a crucial trend defining the future of both the private and public sectors.
The dynamic development of information technologies with simultaneous development of applicable legislation has enabled gradual digitalisation of the key aspects of activities within individual sectors and organisations, and transition to “paperless” solutions. Digitalisation comes hand in hand with increasing efficiency, and time and cost savings. Digitalisation can be conducive to acceleration of the signing of contracts and subsequent steps, and it can facilitate access to services and process by eliminating the requirement for physical presence of the parties. It also improves the evidential and legal reliability of contractual documentation.
Our law firm has responded to these changes by setting up a dedicated legal team with a unique sectoral focus on digitalisation and digital legal acts. This team comprises our legal experts who have extensive expertise in IT law, regulation of personal data protection, and civil law contracts with an emphasis on e-contracting and eGovernment.
We have established a team of experienced legal professionals who provide legal solutions to our clients mainly in the following areas:
Our lawyers have an in-depth knowledge of Czech and Slovak law and extensive experience in implementation and application of EU law. They gather knowledge regarding developments in relevant foreign jurisdictions, including foreign judgments, practice and trends in digitalisation and digital legal acts.
Our cooperation with leading foreign and international law firms allows us to draw experience from developed global markets. We are a member of ICT Unie, engage in eGovernment projects managed by the Czech Ministry of the Interior, and actively participate in the drafting of legislation and in the activities of working parties for eGovernment. We have been involved in the drafting of the Czech Digital Constitution – proposed bill on the right to digital services.
