Information Technology & Telecommunications

New technologies demand new legal expertise and new solutions.

Information technology (IT) has become an important growth factor in virtually all sectors of the economy. Walder Wyss’s core competencies include drafting software licensing agreements as well as agreements on e-commerce, system integration, outsourcing and data processing. Our lawyers deepen their knowledge of technology and the IT industry by regularly working on site for clients. We therefore have both the technical and industry know-how to assist our clients in executing IT transactions and in solving regulatory and other legal issues in the IT sector.

In the telecommunications sector we advise clients on acquisitions, the sale and transfer of licences and concessions, and contacts with regulatory bodies, as well planning and building infrastructure.
