Although the breadth of Waldeck Rechtsanwälte PartmbB’s IT expertise is constantly growing with the increased digitalisation of the industry, advice on outsourcings still constitutes the most prominent part of the practice: In addition to traditional BPOs, ITOs and data centre outsourcings the three-partner team advises its primarily domestic, high-end client base also on cloud-based projects and data protection matters in connection with outsourcing projects. While work for Deutsche Telekom and T-Systems provides a steady flow of activity, in 2017 the firm also handled outsourcing matters for RaboBank and ING-DiBa. It furthermore assisted an automotive supplier with a second generation outsourcing concerning the entire data centre operation at all its locations worldwide and on the provider side it advised an outsourcing services provider on data protection matters related to the movement of CRM data into the cloud.
