We have extensive expertise in the cloud computing industry, having worked with leading enterprise cloud service providers.
This industry sectors require a holistic approach to legal counselling, capable of combining different areas of law, but also of conjugating them having regard to the operational and business specificities that become of relevance from time to time. This is exactly what emlex offers and the capabilities we have developed working side-by-side with cloud computing providers and users since the early days of this ICT resource deployment model.
Dealing with cloud computing or data centres requires awareness of the correct legal qualification of service agreements, by avoiding the mechanical application of contractual schemes that belong to traditional contractual types (such as IT outsourcing), most often unsuitable.
We assist clients, both on the user and provider side, primarily as it concerns cloud services contracts, including provision of professional services for system integration connected to cloud platforms. Our expertise in environmental law, regulatory compliance, administrative law, health and safety is also what we have offered over time to data centre operators.
We fully understand the specificity of the legal challenges posed by cloud based services and we strive to disseminate the culture of cloud computing, through our assistance in a number of cloud related issues. These include liability of cloud service providers, data protection laws applied to cloud service providers, contractual terms, definition of the subject matter of cloud services, construction and management of data centres, security obligations, sector specific regulations applying to cloud services, such as financial sector’s regulations and more, these are all areas in which we do have wealth of experience.
We leverage our expertise in the cloud computing industry to help our clients navigate complex legal and regulatory issues surrounding cloud services. We have also acquired knowledge with respect to the deployment of cloud solutions in the public sector.
