TMC - Technology, Media & Communications Lawyers

Innovation, digital transformation, changing business models: the technology, media and communications sector has been characterised by a single constant in recent years: change. Intellectual property, data protection and security, regulation of operators and management of large quantities of information are therefore vital challenges and are subject to a complex and rapidly changing legal framework, both at the national and European level (law for a new Digital Republic, the creative freedom law, general data protection rules, etc.). While technological advances represent fantastic opportunities for companies, they also present significant risks. In this fast-paced environment, it is now vital to ensure the protection of your company’s interests when establishing information systems. It is also essential to protect the ownership of the intellectual property used and to develop preventive measures to ensure that actions put in place on networks constantly correspond to the applicable legal requirements. The complexity of the challenges requires a pragmatic and multidisciplinary approach to these questions and calls for up-to-the-minute expertise.

Our in-depth understanding of the technological environment combined with our recognised expertise in intellectual property and our perfect command of contract law guarantee the effectiveness of our response to all these questions.

Our team of 10 experts is able to support you in numerous areas: preparation and negotiation of development, licensing and maintenance agreements (particularly in the framework of integration and roll-out of information systems); preparation, negotiation and assistance with the implementation and conclusion of facilities management contracts; preparation and negotiation of website design and creation contracts (merchant and non-merchant sites), hosting contracts, relations with access suppliers; support and monitoring of the legal aspects of projects (participation in steering committees); assistance with the establishment of electronic signature systems (PKI); assistance with the negotiation and conclusion of archiving contracts; database law; personal data protection, compliance audits, representation before the CNIL (the French Data Protection Commission); assistance in drawing up ethical charters, implementation of biometric recognition solutions and implementation of cross-border data flows; advice on the establishment and definition of the role of personal data protection correspondents; assistance in relation to disputes involving contract performance, the defence of intellectual property rights and compliance with the applicable regulations.

Given the changing nature of the applicable regulations, our experts recommend and favour a preventive approach designed to avoid any risk of dispute.

Support from the CMS international network with 100 specialist lawyers allows us to provide you with tailored and effective solutions, whatever the geographical scope of your issues.
