With the Free Trade Agreement, Japan and the EU have created an impressive common economic area. However, paralleled by the increase in exchange of goods and services, exchange of personal data is also rising. Which regulatory framework applies? What are the challenges for the companies concerned?


Axel von dem Bussche heads the practice area Technology, Media & Telecoms and co-ordinates Taylor Wessing's international US group for Germany. Axel has specialised expertise in the technology sector and data protection. His counselling activities focus on tech transactions, software licensing, outsourcing, R&D projects, industry-specific contract design, internet, games and gambling law and regulatory matters. He advises companies on internal processes in the area of group data protection, including negotiations with works councils. A particular focus of his practice is counselling in matters of international dimensions and advising companies during their digital transformation process.
