Technology is boldly entering the commercial property market, e.g. contributing to the development of so-called smart buildings.

With technological solutions, buildings become more efficient and benefit all parties: owners, managers and users.

However, successful application of technology in real estate involves the consideration of significant legal issues such as data collection and processing, the contracting and purchase of IT solutions, and building cybersecurity.

How can we assist you?

  • Verify compliance of the IT solutions to be used in the building, identify risks and advise on how to avoid them.
  • Draft and negotiate agreements with IT solution providers regarding: implementation, support, maintenance and development of smart building systems.
  • Draft and negotiate agreements with suppliers of building automation technology.
  • Advise on the selection of IT suppliers at the procurement process stage.
  • Verify who and to what extent has copyrights to the IT systems used in the building.
  • Conduct an IT security audit of IT systems used in the building.
  • Prepare documentation necessary for the use of smart building systems: terms of service, privacy policy, security policy.
