THE SET-UP

OUR LAW OFFICE

cogito.legal advises on business law. The consulting spectrum ranges from managed legal services to legal outsourcing and litigation in complex proceedings.

The lawyers and legal staff of cogito.legal have many years of expertise as external consultants and in-house lawyers. This extends in particular to IT, media, copyright and data protection law as well as infrastructure and antitrust law in the economic sectors of energy, telecommunications and media.
