Information Technology (IT)

IT Law is one of the most important fields in our more and more technology-dependent world. Atsumi & Sakai Janssen has built up a broad spectrum of expertise in this field through various commitments for clients and research related work. We closely monitor the technological and legal developments in this filed in Germany, the EU and Japan, e.g. regarding safe-harbor principles and cloud computing and advise our clients respectively.  Especially in the newly developing area of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Thing (IoT), we are involved in several ongoing projects on an international, especially Germany-EU-Japan related level. Examples of our commitments include:

  • publication of an article on ‘Industrie 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT)’ in the Journal of the Japanese Institute of International Business Law (Kokusai Shôji Hômu), more info here
  • comprehensive legal support for the set-up and implementation of a newly established virtual computing and cloud internet service provider in Japan
