Laura Berton, Partner, Technology, Outsourcing and Privacy
I specialise in technology, telecommunications, media and outsourcing projects and have over 10 years' experience advising on commercial, IP and IT issues.
I represent a wide array of entrepreneurs and private companies in complex business transactions as well as advising them on their ongoing needs as they arise in the areas of intellectual property, information technology, outsourcing, procurement, e-commerce and data protection.
I frequently advise both suppliers and acquirers on a range of technology related contracts including IT and outsourcing contracts and complex technology procurements. I am experienced in assisting on multinational large scale outsourcing projects.
I also have experience of working on new media and internet matters with search engines, content providers, online retailers and service providers, including in connection with content acquisition; distribution, and digital rights management; and all forms of online contracting and copyright issues.
I have been named a 'rising star' in intellectual property in Super Lawyers 2013.
I regularly present on outsourcing and commercial contracts and I am an occasional lecturer in contract law to MBA students at the world's oldest business school, ESCP Europe.
I speak English, French (fluent), Spanish (good), Italian (good) and Arabic (beginner).
In my spare time I can be found in a dance class or in the sea.
