As head of the firm’s Technology, Media & Telecommunications sector as well as the Data Protection practice in Estonia, I provide extensive support to clients in all IT and telecoms related matters, especially in cases where IT and IP are closely related.
Data protection support. My extensive knowledge and experience on personal data protection matters allows me to advise clients on all aspects of data protection including implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), cybersecurity, online privacy and data breach response strategies. I am also a visiting lecturer on privacy and data protection at the University of Tartu.
Passion for novel technologies. As an ardent follower of disruptive innovation and novel technologies, I advise clients on regulatory matters relating to launching innovative services and products in Estonia.
Service and trade contracts covered. Having significant experience in the field of service and trade contracts including agency, supply and distribution arrangements, I have assisted many local and international businesses in trade deals as well as in setting up trade operations in Estonia and abroad. I advise on product and service related issues ranging from advertising and labelling requirements to complex industry specific regulatory and competition (eg automotive industry, energy and utilities) issues.
