Data Protection Law

Personal data is a value, moreover, a modern commodity. Sensitivity for the protection of personal data increases. Accordingly, in all their activities companies are obliged to comply with data protection provisions.

I support companies in getting prepared for the EU General Data Protection Regulation (25 May 2018) as well as anticipating compliance with Federal Data Protection Act currently under revision .

My key areas of expertise are:

  • Compliance projects, data protection concepts and strategies
  • Data processing agreements / joint controller agreements, in particular in connection with outsourcing projects
  • International data transfers and intra-group data transfers
  • Company data protection guidelines 
  • Employment related data protection compliance
  • Data Protection Audits
