IT and Telecom
There are many legal pitfalls within e-commerce and IT and telecom when digital services cross borders and national legislation.
Through many years we have specialised in IT and telecommunications law, and our interdisciplinary data protection team has a solid background within life science, employment law, corporate law, tax, e-commerce, and intellectual property rights.
Due to our unique Nordic and Baltic approach, we are able to provide one-off solutions covering several countries.
We can assist with:
- IT agreements and negotiations within Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) projects
- Handling of outsourcing
- Application Services Provider (ASP) services
- System development
- Web development
- Software licenses

In addition, NJORD specialists have very good knowledge about e-commerce and other Internet based business related legal areas. We assist in obtaining permits for e-shops and to draft general terms and conditions for e-shops, standard sales agreements and policing information made public on webpages to ensure that they are following current rules and regulations.
We also advise clients in all aspects of national, European, and international data protection issues with regard to non-sensitive personal data as well as the special protection in relation to sensitive personal data.
Our services include:
- Local and Scandinavian compliance of Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower provisions
