KNPZ Rechtsanwälte

Comment: With its business model, this respected IT practice plays a singular role on the market: the small team around Plath takes over the IT aspects in an array of high-volume deals. Here, it supplements the expertise of transaction-driven firms such as Willkie Farr & Gallagher or Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom, which do not offer IT advice themselves. However, Plath’s good reputation – particularly in data protection – ensures enough separately acquired business. A public transportation operator, for example, is relying on KNPZ in data-protection-driven proceedings that may affect the entire industry. Its close cooperation with the media practice, e.g. on digital strategy for core client Bauer Media, rounds out its palette.
