How we can help
  • Drafting of Terms and Conditions

    Terms and conditions for B2C online shops are not as complicated as one might think. The room for manoeuvre left by the law is manageable. Nevertheless, it is still important that the terms and conditions are compliant with the law. It is a different matter in the B2B sector. Here it is essential to ensure that the optimal legal framework is in place – in conformity with the law and using plain language.

  • Drafting of Terms and Conditions of Use

    We develop terms and conditions of use for small and large platforms. In addition to typical content (such as how to use the account), there are specific requirements that result from the type of platform and the services offered on it.

  • Cookie banners and privacy policy

    Both the GDPR and the ePrivacy Directive have led to the mass introduction of cookie banners. For the user this involves an annoying series of options and clicks, for the website operator it means a lot of work. We deliver customised solutions.

  • Website audits

    One of our standard products is the website check. We check our clients’ entire internet presence for compliance with the applicable law and also review their social media profiles. Usually our work results in a PDF document, which indicates the immediate need for action with the aid of screenshots.

  • Support with app development

    Mobile apps are now more the standard than the exception in e-commerce. We have long been advising on the legally compliant design of shopping apps in particular. The judicious implementation of all legal requirements on tiny screens is not simply a technical challenge. Our range of consulting services also includes support during contract negotiations or accompanying the publishing process in the respective app store.

  • Platform assistance

    Online shops are increasingly evolving into real trading places. Many retailers and manufacturers recognise that it can be lucrative to allow competition onto their own platform. This brings with it a number of legal problems. We advise on antitrust law as well as on the difficult issues arising from shared shopping carts.

  • Representation in court and arbitration proceedings

    It is not only agile projects that sometimes go wrong. Our litigation team has many years of experience in managing large-scale litigation involving failed online projects. In doing so, we represent both solution providers and the clients. The true artistry, however, lies in presenting the complex facts to the court in an understandable way that clearly demonstrates the true reason for the failure of the project.

Online marketing

We have been involved in digital advertising law for a long time. Initially, the main focus was on double opt-in in email marketing and the use of brands as keywords for search queries or in metatags. We advise both advertising agencies and their major customers. We help tool providers with data protection issues and advise both large and small companies on how to implement marketing measures on their websites.
