Data Protection

As technology advances, more and more information is being collected, stored, and exchanged all over the world. Personal data has become a precious economic commodity and data protection is acquiring increasing significance.

Our professionals have extensive experience in all issues relating to data protection law and the protection of personal privacy. We advise clients on how to ensure compliance with data protection laws within the company, represent parties before the cantonal and federal data protection authorities, draft data protection agreements, and advise private clients and public entities on all matters of data protection law. We regularly assist clients who are subject to specific confidentiality obligations, such as in the banking, telecommunications, health, and insurance sectors.
