/ Technology, Cybersecurity and Data Protection

The Technology, Cybersecurity and Data Protection practice area is led by Macarena Gatica and advises clients on intellectual property, licensing, software, hardware, technology transfer, outsourcing, personal data processing, e-commerce, cybersecurity, acquisitions, consulting services, joint ventures and strategic alliances, across a broad spectrum of industries and technologies.

Our TMT lawyers also advise clients on local and international regulations related to information technology, personal data protection and cybersecurity.

We stand out for our experience in structuring and negotiating agreements to appropriately meet a company’s IT infrastructure and operations needs by assessing regulatory, commercial and reputational risk, from the development, marketing and operation of IT-based assets and services, to, such as, privacy impact assessment (PIA), security impact assessment, hosting agreements, hardware and software maintenance and support contracts, systems integration agreements, consulting services agreements and outsourcing agreements for a range of IT functions, including data protection compliance models, application development and maintenance, desktop and device support, server management and telecommunications.

Experience has shown us that in order to create a legal framework for companies to regulate legal issues related to technology, intellectual property, personal data and cybersecurity, it is necessary that it encompasses labor law and compliance. Therefore, Alessandri’s compliance, labor law and litigation practice areas’ support has been fundamental to provide a comprehensive advice.
