Solicitor for IT Law
Phone: +49 (0) 40 357 662 0

Dr. Oliver Gießler specialises in IT law and advises numerous companies with a focus on internet, IT, technology, agencies and media. He supports his clients on contract law and strategic issues in particular, but also does not shy away from legal disputes if necessary. He complements his special legal expertise as a specialist solicitor for IT law with extensive practical IT knowledge. He therefore does not need to have IT law issues translated from technology to law first.

For more than 20 years, one of his passions has been advising startups from foundation, through ongoing activities and financing, to a successful exit.

Navigating the legal and tax jungle
Businesses are always in a state of flux. They have to deal with a plethora of laws that are constantly changing and multiplying.

We help entrepreneurs to correctly apply the laws and regulations that are important for them and to implement these as efficiently as possible: 

  • at foundation,
  • in day-to-day business,
  • in restructuring projects,
  • in mergers and joint ventures,
  • in the purchase and sale of companies,
  • for projects in Germany as well as abroad. 

Preventive and extensive
We ensure that as little as possible goes wrong in the minefield of tax rules – at home and abroad. In day-to-day business we take care of

  • contracts
  • contract management,
  • licenses,
  • competition,
  • compliance,
  • labour law
  • and much more.

And in court
It’s best to take care of things in advance, so that problems do not arise in the first place. As solicitors, however, we are of course on hand in cases where a legal dispute is unavoidable – whether it be as advisers or as representatives for contentious proceedings in court. And, if worse comes to worst, even for tax and white collar crime proceedings.

Communication and Media

The conflicting priorities of media law
Press and copyright law are the two areas of media law that we are committed to representing.

Companies and individuals from the creative and artistic environment operate under the conflicting priorities of media law – in which corresponding conflicts have to be overcome.

Our experience shows that expert legal advice and a good communication strategy are essential success factors in the media industry. This ensures that conflicts can be avoided from the outset.
