Find Lawyers in Spain for Information Technology Law

Practice Area Overview

Information Technology Law can be defined as a legal framework which encompasses many different subject matters or legal issues pivoting on one single aspect, i.e., the usage, collection, transformation, and dissemination of electronic information. Telecommunications, e-commerce, software, privacy, outsourcing, contracts, intellectual property, compliance, inter alia, are all disciplines which can fit adequately under the general description provided they revolve around digital information. It is therefore safe to say that the field is both wide-ranging and spanning a number of different industries, which requires professionals capable of handling the large variety.

A practitioner in the field will thus be confronted with software, hardware, procurement, compliance, technology transfer, and Internet issues but likewise with corporate, contract, and event litigation matters as they all pertain to such an extensive field. To top it all, transnational aspects are normally the rule rather than the exception and need to be brought into the picture to adequately frame the eventual outcome.

Clients typically are industry players in the information technology landscape, ranging from small start-up companies to large international corporations. They oftentimes need a creative solution to a problem whilst staying within the regulatory constraints which are normally of application. Anticipation of eventual trouble down the road is also an asset that clients normally highly appreciate.

A sound understanding of clients’ needs proves instrumental to both represent their needs correctly and reach out to other stakeholders that can eventually be part of the coveted best option to the case at hand. Likewise, the ability to interact fluently and often with clients’ representatives, both internal and external, is key to identifying the different options and select the one which best caters to the specific individual circumstances. Those are the qualities an IT lawyer needs to be equipped with to grasp a constantly shifting legal and regulatory scenario.
