Dr. Claus Färber focuses his practice on all legal aspects related to the telecoms, media and technology industries and is a member of the German Telecom, Media and Technology (TMT) practice group in Munich. Claus advises on major cooperation and framework agreements in IT, ecommerce and communications, such as internet access in aircraft, Wi-Fi hotspots, roaming, cloud platforms and machine-to-machine communications (M2M). These projects often break new grounds from a technological and commercial as well as legal view and regularly touch multiple sectors of the law, including telecommunications, information technology and intellectual property law, and also require an understanding of the economic technological background.
His expertise further extends to the drafting and negotiation of IT and business process outsourcing (BPO) agreements as well as significant procurement agreements in the telecoms, ecommerce and IT industry, and to significant litigation in these industries.
Claus also counsels media and technology companies on consumer protection laws, as well as on software licensing, in particular with respect to enterprise software. He also provides guidance on data protection and the transfer of personal data to the United States under the EU-US Privacy Shield, which is an ongoing concern across all industries, including the health care sector.
