AGM Abogados Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT)

In an increasingly digitalised and connected world, the effective protection and management of technology, information and intellectual property is critical to business success.

At our firm, our Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) & Intellectual Property (IP) area provides specialist advice on an extensive range of TMT and IP issues.

In the field of TMT, we advise our clients on issues ranging from data protection to e-commerce projects or more disruptive businesses (blockchain, AI, NFTs, etc.), as well as on issues relating to cybersecurity, or regarding the negotiation, drafting and resolution of disputes relating to software contracts (development, licensing, breaches, etc.).

Therefore, we provide advice on how to design protocols, contracts and documents aimed at protecting intellectual property and provide support to protect the corresponding copyrights, trademarks and industrial property.
