Technology and digitisation are becoming ever more all-encompassing in parts of commerce and industry and society as a whole. The international technology companies have grown to be the world's largest and most valuable, while digitisation is a trend that eventually will affect all undertakings in all industries. Norway is world leading when it comes to use of digital services and Norwegian enterprises lead the development of technological solutions in a number of areas.
The rapid development increases the complexity of contracts and legislation. What is constant is the need for lawyers with knowledge of both technology and law, who are able to meet the challenges.
Wiersholm's team has many years of experience in managing technology-related legal issues. We know the relevant Norwegian industry standards and have very good knowledge of the licencing models used by the international technology suppliers, both in relation to customers and suppliers. Our assistance includes the preparation and negotiation of several types of technology licences and IT contracts. The extensive industry knowledge, solid professional expertise and close follow-up of the clients have made us the preferred choice of large Norwegian and foreign companies that supply or purchase technology-related services.
We assist technology suppliers in key industries such as oil and gas, the pharmaceutical industry and information technology, as well as technology users in a wide range of industries.
We place great importance on following up our clients and providing assistance across the whole range of matters, such as intellectual property law (copyrights, patents, trademarks, data protection and marketing law) and electronic commerce, as well as convergence-related issues. We also provide legal assistance and advisory services in connection with disputes, contract negotiations, as well as advice in relation to commercial and strategic choices.
