FPS’s IT Team advises across a broad spectrum of IT issues including large IT projects (implementation of agile software, outsourcing of IT infrastructure to the cloud, etc.), the implementation of innovative business models and the use of artificial intelligence. Our IT experts also advise on the admissibility of forward-looking online marketing measures, software piracy and the protection of know-how. In addition, the IT team is regularly consulted in relation to corporate transactions and start-ups as in a networked world the essential assets of many organizations are digital.
