Technology & Data

IT and technology licensing, ERP-projects, outsourcing, digital transformation, cloud computing, agile software development, fintech, data and data regulation, AI - whatever your technology law needs may be, we have the track record and capability to assist you. The expertise, experience, and insight of our Technology practice, combined with our way of working as a seamless cross-border and cross-practice team, means that we are well placed to advise on the most demanding technology law related assignments and to see beyond the law to provide practical and strategic advise that provides value to your business.

Hannes Snellman’s cross-border Technology practice is one of the leading practices in the Nordic market. Our Technology team has vast experience in all aspects of technology law matters, ranging from traditional IT and outsourcing transactions to cloud computing, the Internet of things (IoT), agile software development, fintech, data and data regulation, as well as robotic process automation and artificial intelligence (AI).

Our team advises both buyers and suppliers of technology and related services, most typically on business-critical projects. We have the privilege of working with some of the world’s most innovative companies and companies seen as pioneers in their field, which means that we are continuously exposed to new technologies and business models that are shaping industries. We also continuously follow and analyse the legal implications of the technologies and business models of tomorrow, so that we know what is coming well before it becomes mainstream and can help our clients efficiently navigate in the increasingly important and complex field of technology law.

As the world is continuously becoming more converged with industries one after another being affected by the advances of technology, digitalisation, and the data economy, advising clients from silos is not an option for us. Therefore, we work closely and seamlessly with our other practices to include the necessary industry and sector expertise into the assignments of our Technology practice.

We understand the global nature of today’s business and have established relationships with the leading technology law practices around the world. This means that we can and do serve our clients wherever their business and need for legal services may take them and are capable and used to managing global projects for our clients.

Our seasoned Technology Litigation team understands the complexity of technology-related disputes whether they are in general courts or in arbitration.

To achieve the business goals of our clients, our seasoned and business-oriented litigators suggest litigation and settlement strategies that may consist, for example, of obtaining a fast interim injunction or other relief, settlement negotiations to resolve the case out of court and before trial, or creative but thorough tactics for litigation or arbitration.

In each case, we form a dedicated team of experts to correspond to the type and extent of the case and work closely with our Dispute Resolution and Competition & Procurement practices. We represent our clients in Finnish and Swedish authorities and courts, as well as in the European Union Intellectual Property Office and the Court of Justice of the European Union. With regard to arbitration, we represent our clients in international arbitration institutes, such as the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center, in addition to Finnish and Swedish arbitration institutes.

Our Technology Litigation team frequently acts, for example in:

  • Arbitration regarding complex contractual issues, often relating to software
  • Patent litigation in many different fields of technology
  • Trade secret litigation
  • Trademark and domain name litigation also covering anti-counterfeiting and unfair business practices
  • Copyright and database disputes often relating to software or digital rights
  • Complex contractual issues relating to intellectual property and technology
  • Disputes relating to public procurement

The rapidly evolving technology has transformed outsourcing from a mere cost-saving measure to a strategic catalyst for accessing market-leading know-how and cutting-edge innovations. Today’s effective outsourcing strategies can combine the benefits of the improved quality of IT and business processes with driven down costs and a more responsive business environment.

Acting for both corporate and public-sector clients as well as top service providers has helped us to understand the priorities of clients across a broad spectrum of technologies and business sectors. We have been guiding clients throughout the outsourcing life cycle, from identifying the right mix of internal and external IT services to contract negotiations and implementation of the outsourcing model. We also advise clients on the outsourcing of the full range of business processes, such as asset and cash management, finance and accounting, human resources and administration, as well as procurement and facilities and logistics management. The depth of our experience at all sourcing levels (including onshore, offshore, and nearshore) helps our clients turn potential options into viable and well-executed outsourcing partnerships.

In addition to outsourcing, we advise our clients in complex ICT transactions, such as ICT project deliveries, cloud computing contracting, and ongoing ICT service arrangements.

Among a wide variety of compliance areas that companies nowadays need to be aware of, data protection is regarded as a “new-comer”. This is not because there has not been any previous legislation on the topic, but because the strict new requirements set forth in the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the ePrivacy Regulation, coupled with potentially massive fines for non-compliance, has meant that privacy has quickly become one of the hottest areas within the field of compliance.

To help our clients to steer through the changing waves, we offer a complete and tailor-made approach on data protection compliance, including management and implementation. Our approach is strongly influenced by our view that meeting the requirements of the GDPR (and other data privacy legislation) should be regarded as a business enabler and not solely as a compliance issue. We advise our clients in:

  • everyday questions regarding the interpretation of and compliance with data protection and privacy laws
  • drafting and reviewing relevant documentation (privacy policies, consent forms, etc.)
  • general matters and help with negotiating and drafting data processing contracts and clauses
  • preparing data protection impact assessments
  • internal and external communication related to data protection
  • sector and industry specific privacy questions (for example, HR, healthcare, financial services, electronic communications)
  • training their HR, Legal, IT, sales & marketing teams, among other things

Hannes Snellman’s Technology practice advises clients in relation to the public procurement of technology and digital assets. Due to our exceptional combination of deep understanding in public procurement and technology within the same team, we are able to offer strategic advice in the most demanding matters. Our team advices clients before, during, and after tendering competitions. We provide assistance to contracting entities in the preparation of calls to tender, market surveys, negotiated procedures, as well as court proceedings and contractual negotiations. We provide assistance to bidders with regard to influencing in tendering competitions during market surveys, analysis of calls to tender, compliance with calls to tender, risk analysis, drafting of bids, review procedures in court proceedings, as well as contractual negotiations. In addition, our experts regularly offer training sessions to our clients.

Hannes Snellman, together with Hogan Lovells and Gleiss Lutz, successfully represented Supponor entities in the Helsinki Local Division of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) in a case concerning a digital overlay technology. As requested by the defendants, the court dismissed the patent holder’s preliminary injunction application and main action due to lack of jurisdiction, as the asserted patent had initially been opted-out from the UPC’s jurisdiction, and its subsequent attempted opt-out withdrawal was deemed ineffective under Art. 83 of the UPC Agreement due to pending national proceedings. This was the first oral hearing and first decision by the Helsinki Local Division of the UPC since the launch of the UPC on 1 June 2023
