Dr. Daniel Meßmer
To me, the special appeal of IT law lies in the legal advice on trending technological topics and in the legal implementation of innovative business models.
Dr. Daniel Meßmer advises nationally and internationally operating clients in all areas of IT law. He specializes in implementing software-based and cloud-based business models, in particular the drafting, negotiating, and interpreting of contracts.
In addition to traditional IT contract law, Dr. Daniel Meßmer has particular expertise in the use of open source software. He is a co-author of the Bitkom guide “Open-Source-Software – Rechtliche Grundlagen und Handlungshinweise“ [“Open Source Software – Legal Basis and Guidelines for Action”]. Dr. Daniel Meßmer also advises companies on the legal requirements for IT security of infrastructures and networks.
