TMT annual report 2017: Treasure chest

The introduction of new EU rules on data protection means it will be boom time for TMT lawyers in the next year
Storage of large amounts of sensitive data on the cloud, as well as the greater reliance on third parties to provide services creating complex legal issues
Firms with ‘shared vision’ link-up as Spanish clients grow operations in Portugal, while imminent introduction of General Data Protection Regulation promises significant opportunities
Companies digitising their businesses need to adapt their entire client contracting process as well as changing their organisation’s internal regulations
Technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) lawyers in Portugal are able to provide an effective range of legal services to foreign clients acting in other jurisdictions, says Magda Cocco, partner at Vieira de Almeida in Lisbon.
New regulations enforce tough penalties for breaches of the law with clients facing fines of €20m or 4 per cent of their total worldwide turnover
The pace of innovation in the technology, media and telecoms (TMT) market is proving to be both an opportunity and a threat to the clients of major Portuguese law firms. On the positive side, Portugal’s improving economic climate is increasingly attractive to industry start-ups and investors who are benefiting from what Carina Branco, counsel at the Portuguese law firm PBBR, considers an ‘entrepreneurial buzz’.
