IT-Law

Serbia

Information technology is developing at lightning speed, at the same time, the field of IT law has developed at a similar pace. One of the key drivers of success for your company is arguably a highly-complex, customised software system which has to run without a glitch, since system errors can have massive financial implications. In addition to watertight liability and guarantee clauses, the content of IT contracts must be clear, with all the details covered, to avoid potential disputes after the fact. With their solid technical expertise, this is exactly what our legal team specialises in.

For a number of years now, we have represented software providers and users alike, advising them on legal questions relating to IT, internet and E Commerce matters. Our clients include not only developers and manufacturers of software and hardware, but also users, including well-known banks and insurance companies, publishers, manpower agencies and various other companies who require complex and customised software platforms to run their businesses.

Whether you are a multinational concern or a medium-sized company, we can advise you on hardware and software purchases, the implementation of large-scale projects, the exploitation or transfer of licences, as well as contracts for software programming or maintenance. IT outsourcing or cloud computing projects can raise some major data protection issues and this is one of the core areas we focus on in our IT consulting activities. In addition, we can assist you in the enforcement of compensation or subsequent improvement claims arising from IT contracts and if required, can also represent your interests before courts or arbitration tribunals. CMS presence in 42 countries worldwide means that we can also provide you with efficient advisory services in any cross-border transactions that you may have.
