Binder Grösswang is one of the pioneers of Digital Law, a new legal specialty, in Austria. In fact, we coined the expression “Digital Law” in the Austrian legal landscape, thus living up to our own ambitious standard of covering any and all legal aspects of digitalisation. Our Digital Law Competence Centre is a hub for bundling the digitalisation know-how in our practice areas and for exploring new issues.
Digital Law comes to bear on numerous legal fields, including data protection, IP, contract law, public law, fiscal law, employment law, M&A, corporate, regulatory, finance, dispute resolution, real estate and cartel law.
In our work, all our teams and practice areas are faced with specific topics and questions of digital law. Often enough, our experts encounter entirely new legal issues as they deal with topics of the future which have not been subject to legal analysis in Austria before. Our pioneering work and the ambition to provide legal solutions for the latest technological innovations in all aspects are in line with our guiding principle – to be the law firm in Austria which is also at the cutting edge of digitalisation.
Our Digital Law Competence Centre bundles relevant work experience across teams and practice areas, thus facilitating a general and cross-cutting view of legal aspects in digitalisation. This also comes with quite intensive research and publication activities, including, amongst other things, our book “Digital Law” (ed. Binder Grösswang). It is also the framework for cooperation between our law firm and university departments in matters of digitalisation, and for our participation in research projects about new digital applications.
