Legal services in the field of information technology (IT law)


IT Law (Information law) is a new rapidly developing branch of law. It includes issues of regulation of information turnover, creation and use of information resources and systems. Until now, many lawyers do not distinguish it as an independent practice, but consider it as a set of rules of various branches of law, primarily as the protection of intellectual property, with elements of labour, contract, corporate law, etc. Without going into these theoretical subtleties, we as practicing lawyers believe it is necessary to distinguish IT law in a separate category.

Experience in working with projects in the field of information technology and understanding of business processes in this sphere allow us to solve problems of legal support for such clients as: 

  • owners of websites, online stores;
  • software vendors;
  • mobile app and game developers;
  • online and offline media;
  • startups in the IT industry;
  • venture funds and “business angels”;
  • web studio;
  • outsourcing companies that provide various services in the IT sphere (localization and software testing, hosting, Internet promotion, etc.);
  • owners of SaaS projects (software as a service), e-commerce platforms;
  • crowdfunding and crowdinvesting sites;
  • Bitcoin enthusiasts.

Our services in the field of information law:


  • comprehensive legal support of IT projects at various stages – start-up, product market entry, deals with investors, etc.;
  • development of corporate and financial schemes for business – attracting investments, analysis of legal risks, optimization of financial flows, including minimization of tax risks and losses;

  • development of legal documents under a specific business model of the project (B2C, B2B and C2C) – terms of use, terms & conditions, etc., confidentiality agreements (NDA), privacy policy, licensing agreements (including the EULA), etc.;

  • legal support for the introduction of new services in e-Commerce;
  • comprehensive protection of intellectual property, including in disputes related to software and content rights;

Despite having significant experience, we do not say that “we know everything about IT business and are ready to answer any question” - in this sphere there are often no direct regulation and relevant judicial practice, so many questions require a certain flexibility and proficiency from lawyers.
