about me

I am a lawyer for civil law and business law, a specialist for information technology law as well as a business mediator.

I support you in the application of your law and enforce your right, your interests, your values together with you.

This means: being economically successful, being recognized, successful cooperation, being free.

This can also mean: against each other instead of with each other, ending instead of continuing, fighting instead of coming to an understanding.

The values at stake are increasingly intangible values also. Whether in the use of current information technology; the use, production and exploitation of intangible assets; in collaborations of business value. The emergence and decay of such values are less dependent on material conditions than in classical industrial production. This makes your production more flexible and accelerates your sales in particular, but it also makes you more vulnerable and therefore requires more investment in safeguarding and asserting your interests.

Whether local or global, offline or networked, physical or incorporeal, digitization frees people’s collaboration in the creation and dissemination of value from many shackles. Such collaborations must be deliberately brought into legal form in order to succeed.

My central fields of activity are therefore: Information technology – Intellectual property – Cooperations

I help you to realize your potential for yourself and for others together, also online in the digital sphere.

Rechtsanwalt Wilko Bauer, M.A.
