Privacy and ePrivacy

We are among the pioneers and leading experts in Privacy Law

Privacy should be treated as a prior topic, since legal sanctions are often accompanied by the negative publicity of a “privacy scandal”. We provide you with support to avoid this!

Media Law

We enforce your personal rights and defend your freedom of journalism

Media reporting stands in a dense relationship between journalistic freedom and the protection of the personal rights of the individual. In media law, the main focus is on the protection of honor, against violations of the highly personal sphere of life and an (inadmissible) invasion of privacy.
