Mannheimer Swartling has comprehensive expertise in the regulatory landscape for digital products and services. Our lawyers closely follow the rapid developments in this area and work daily with regulatory advice, transactions and supervisory matters.

The EU has recently adopted a number of new directives and regulations in areas such as product safety, cybersecurity, sharing and management of data, resilience, continuity management, digital platforms and the development and use of AI. Some of these regulations affect all companies, regardless of industry or size. Other regulations affect specific industries or authorities.

In the area of Digital Compliance, we ensure seamless collaboration and full integration of legal competences and industry knowledge to create commercial, value-creating and innovative solutions for our clients in areas such as cyber and product security, privacy and consumer protection, resilience, security legislation and digital markets and access to and use of data.
