Dr. Daniel Meßmer



Certified Expert for IT Law

Why did you specialize in this field?

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. Meßmer advises national and international clients in all areas of IT law. The focus of his work is on designing and negotiating software and IT outsourcing contracts, the legal support to implement progressive business models and the requirements for the protection of IT infrastructures and networks. This includes innovative technology arrangements, IoT, cloud computing, open source software, and IT security. Dr. Meßmer’s expertise also includes advice on all matters pertaining to data protection law, including international data transfers.

Prior to his work at SKW Schwarz, Dr. Meßmer worked in the legal department of Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG, where he was primarily responsible for the legal support of software purchases (production materials).

Dr. Meßmer obtained his doctoral degree at the Faculty of Law of Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich. He wrote his dissertation on the client’s right to self-performance in case of inadequate software creation.
