Digital Law

Digital Law is developing as a discipline with elements of Commercial, Administrative and International Law, encompassing aspects relating to the Internet and the digital media, or online media, including intellectual property, data protection, e-commerce and consumer laws, and domain names.

What to ask a Digital Law expert about

Just as we go to other legal practitioners for matters relating to employment, taxes or mergers, a Digital Law expert can help you with the following:

  • Ensuring that your website or Internet portal is compliant with the law.
  • What online sales require, the rules that apply and the wording to be used
  • How to target consumers with become spammers
  • What brand must and may be used on the Internet
  • What are the rights in and to online contents: can photographs, texts or presentations be used?
  • How to collect data whilst staying within privacy laws
  • What contracts must be signed with whoever creates, designs, develops, hosts or maintains a website?
  • Is a mobile application eligible for protection and what must be done in order for it to be legal?
  • Do specific local laws exist for sectors that are usually regulated (gaming, minors, spirits …)?
  • And many more questions.

At Herrero & Asociados, we have for years now been working on this and are aware of how fast changes are taking place and new releases are being put on the market on a daily basis, and that demands that we constantly refresh our knowledge and be fully acquainted with the state of the art in the online world.

Why Herrero & Asociados Digital Law?

Herrero & Asociados has been true to its mission to take the service to the client and provide a customised yet highly professional service, and the Digital Law area not only shares this same mission statement but has during this time been the secret to customer loyalty. We deal with very different sectors (technology, industrial, food, distribution, retail), regardless of size.

The synergies generated from the Digital Law area with other areas (patents and trade marks) are highly appreciated by our customers, who require a joint legal and technical vision. We also believe that information must flow and therefore endeavour to be very instructive in the explanations we give in order to achieve our intended goal: that our clients be compliant but glad to “understand” their consultants.
