Technology and Digitalisation

Technology and digital solutions are fundamental to modern business operations and are often integrated with a company's core processes. We provide assistance to Norwegian and international businesses in the most complex technology and digitisation projects, from inception to completion.

The development, implementation, and use of new technology can present a range of regulatory challenges. Our lawyers possess the necessary expertise to guide clients through these obstacles, ensuring compliance with all relevant laws and regulations.

We have significant expertise and experience in procuring and developing technological solutions that meet with legal requirements including privacy (GDPR), information security, e-commerce, and other electronic interactions.  

Technology and digitalisation involves significant collaboration and knowledge transfer. We have extensive experience in technology transfer projects, including with research and development contracts, joint ventures, licensing agreements and as part of company transactions.

Complex technology projects can lead to disputes of similar complexity. Strategy and risk management are crucial to finding solutions to such disputes. We have led the work on some of the largest and most complex technology disputes that have been filed before Norwegian courts. Additionally, we regularly assist clients with the enforcement of their own intellectual property rights and address issues regarding the potential violations of others' rights.
