IT and Digitalisation
Simonsen Vogt Wiig has Norway's largest team of lawyers in the field of information technology.
Our leading position is driven by an understanding of business processes and innovation and our presence in this market for decades.
We advise a number of the top clients, both amongst vendors and customers, and our lawyers have played a key role in the development of standard contracts within the sector. We also focus on advising innovative start ups with global business potential.
Core areas in our IT practice include assistance with technology transactions and due diligence, strategic outsourcing, system implementation, software license and distribution agreements, open source, cloud services, agile development contracts and technology disputes.
Data protection compliance is a top of the agenda item for all major enterprises operating in Norway. We have provided privacy advice to our clients since data and privacy protection became an issue many years ago. We are therefore able to draw on our practical and long standing experience in our advice on how organisations should approach data protection compliance to add value to their business.
Security and emergency preparedness is becoming increasingly vital for corporations. Vulnerability to cyberattacks against critical infrastructure and other breaches of security have resulted in regulatory initiatives in both the EU and the USA. In this area, we cooperate closely with third party security companies to prevent, identify and handle in-house breaches of security.
The #1 team in Norway
Simonsen Vogt Wiig’s Technology (TMT) Practice is top ranked internationally by both Chambers and Partners and Legal 500.
Additionally, we are ranked #1 in Norway by both Prospera and Finansavisen (The Norwegian Financial Daily).
They have excellent cross-border connections, through a well-developed contact network. It's like a one-stop shop for us on international cases.
