Today, digital trade is competing with traditional distribution channels. Its disruptive power is increasingly putting purely analogue business models under pressure. New customer expectations must be met if a company is to flourish in the eCommerce business.

eCommerce is now much more than digital marketing of goods and services. The possibility of electronic processing of business transactions has led to the emergence of expanded or totally new business models in other sectors of the economy. In the digital age, intellectual property becomes an increasingly meaningful economic factor.

The growth of eCommerce provokes a constant increase in regulatory density. Online-specific provisions which undergo constant change caused bytechnical developments or consumer protection requirements must be considered on an equal footing with traditional legal issues.

We have been engaged for years with questions in national and international eCommerce and advise our clients on the legal design of their online business or marketplace, e.g. on the design of Terms and Conditions and Privacy Statements, on information and imprint obligations, on distribution cooperations, and on the assertion of rights in case of anti-competitive or unfair commercial practices. Our advice covers the following legal areas in particular:

  • Contract law and licencing
  • Distance selling law
  • Domain law
  • Licence law
  • Digital Rights Management
  • Competition law 
  • Data protection law
  • Trademark law
  • Company law
  • Telemedia law
  • Design law
  • Private international law
