v—p—Areas of Specilization



The law firm’s core competence lies in IT law. We advise enterprises (both providers and customers) on the protection of software and databases, on drawing up and negotiating all kinds of IT contracts, and on data privacy protection. We take account of the particular legal challenges posed by digitization in all areas of a company and in value-added chains (“Industry 4.0”, “IoT”, autonomous driving). We support our clients when projects run into difficulties and also conduct IT litigation and arbitration proceedings as both lawyers and arbitrators. One of the pivotal factors in the success of Vogel & Partner is the combination of knowledge of the industry, an understanding of technology and legal expertise applied to the best possible advantage of our clients.

Intellectual Property and Media

Advisory services on intellectual property law form a further focus of our work. Trademarks, patents, designs, copyright and other intellectual property rights - IP increasingly constitutes the fundamental value of an enterprise. We assist our clients in protecting, defending and enhancing the value of their intellectual property. We develop secure portfolios of IP rights, draw up contracts on usage and exploitation, monitor IP rights and defend them against attacks mounted by third parties. Our clients also rely on our substantial experience in matters of competition law – both where disputes are settled out of court and in court proceedings.

Labour, Employment and Business Law

We have specialized expertise and extensive experience in labour and employment law. We advise enterprises during all phases and in all situations of employment relationships and their termination. We focus particularly on providing guidance to enterprises in matters governed by the law on works councils. We endeavour to avoid confrontation and prefer to encourage effective, purposeful dealings with the works council. In the area of business law we assist SMEs especially on all issues of corporate and commercial law. In doing so we do not lose sight of the financial consequences of our actions. We are able to rely on an excellent network of colleagues abroad where the foreign activities of our clients are concerned.
