Digital Economy

Over the past decade many aspects of our economy have changed due to significant technological developments such as the artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, the Internet of Things (IoT), smart mobility and the rise of digital platforms.

These developments change the way companies do business and in the process raise novel legal challenges. These challenges requires a multidisciplinary approach and a thorough understanding of the latest technological developments. The Stibbe Digital Economy Group consists of a team of experienced digital economy experts with various legal backgrounds and provides vital services to clients looking to navigate the digital technology landscape.

Our understanding of these technological advancements, coupled with our in-depth knowledge of all the connected legal areas such as privacy, financial regulatory, competition law, litigation, and employment law, enables us to help our clients in high profile and effective solutions for their digital transformation or digital continuation. Our clients include platform companies, financial institutions, fintech companies, car manufacturers, blue chip companies and start-ups. These clients trust us when it comes to navigating a variety of topics including employment law implications for digital platforms, identifying and addressing liabilities in smart contracts and on the use of PSD2 data in developing new (financial) products.
