EHLO is a new source of Luxembourg legal knowledge on information and communication technologies, intellectual property, media and data protection compiled by our lawyers working on a day to day basis in these areas of practice.
Our dedicated team closely follows the developments and ongoing emergence of new directives, laws and regulations as well as the increasing number of case law and guidance specifying the application in practice of the legal and regulatory landscape.
We are keen to share valuable information, which we deem of interest to you in easy to read format. We are of course available to expand on a given subject, upon request.
EHLO is not intended to replace our firm's general monthly Newsletter (to which you must subscribe if you wish to receive EHLO), but to supplement it by disseminating specific information and news in a reactive manner for these dedicated areas of practice.
Some topics with respect to information and communication technologies, intellectual property, media and data protection may be more extensively developed in the firm's general monthly Newsletter.
EHLO will be published at a varying frequency depending on the news, recent developments on a specific subject or growing interest on a specific point of interest.
For its launch, EHLO returns in the form of a retrospective on some key legal events of the year 2019.
