Digital Transformation

Smart data, the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 all demonstrate how digital transformation has brought far-reaching changes to the global economy. These changes are now part of everyday corporate life and affect almost every industry. Companies are increasingly seeing digital transformation as an opportunity and reinventing their processes for the digital age.

The challenges of digital transformation

There are, however, still many unresolved issues around legally defensible implementation of digitisation strategies. Innovative business models and the use of new technologies confront companies with completely novel legal challenges. Digital transformation impacts data protection, IT security, contract design, liability and regulation. Accordingly, interdisciplinary collaboration is now more important than ever. You may find further information in our joint study "Digital Economy and Law" with the Bundesverband der Unternehmensjuristen (BUJ).
