You are confronted with great challenges.
The area of "Intellectual Property, Media and Information Technology" is characterised by a rapidly and continuously developing technology. Accordingly, the markets in which our clients operate in this field are changing fast.
The resulting challenges not only place new demands on business IT in terms of speed and reliability, they also radically change the role of IT in companies and thus its significance for overall business success. Existing business processes are increasingly being automated and digitalized and at the same time the constant new technical requirements and market conditions lead to high competitive pressure. Companies must therefore take innovative steps or even reinvent themselves in order to meet the changing needs of their customers. As a result, research and development has become extremely important for the use of new products in many industries, so the value of a company increasingly depends on its intellectual property. Effective innovative IT solutions and the protection of the company's own IP assets are therefore of the highest priority.
With technological progress and changing market conditions, the legal situation is also constantly changing. Companies have to know and consider a multitude of legal requirements, e.g. in the areas of data protection and compliance.
