Jean-Luc Juhan - Latham & Watkins

Within: IT, telecoms and the Internet

Latham & Watkins’ IT and telecoms offering is led by transactions and contracts specialist Jean-Luc Juhan and experienced litigator Myria Saarinen. A household name client instructed a team led by Juhan to oversee the reorganisation of its telecom infrastructures, the renegotiation of an outsourcing contract and various information technology projects related to e-marketing; on the contentious side, Saarinen successfully represented a healthcare company in litigation which arose from the termination of a public procurement contract for a healthcare IT project and a counterclaim on the grounds of wrongful termination. The practice also provides day-to-day advice on data privacy matters, digitalisation and cloud-based projects, commercial agreements with distributors and third parties, and IT issues arising from corporate transactions in the technology space. LVMH, L’Oréal and Amazon are among the key clients.
