Technology and data – both personal and non-personal data – play an increasingly important role in our society and in the world of business, especially during these unprecedented times. As such, the legal and contractual aspects of these areas should be prioritised and given the attention they deserve. I’m confident that, together with Samuli and the rest of the dedicated team, we are well equipped to assist our clients on navigating through all legal questions that involve technology and data,” says Erkko Korhonen, Partner and Co-head of Borenius’ Technology practice.
