The international shipping and logistics community is undergoing ever faster digitalisation. Projects dealing with industry digitalisation can have a decisive impact on your competitive setting, provide new integration and co-operation opportunities, and even help create new business models, but will also create a variety of new legal challenges.

Castrén & Snellman's maritime digitalisation service is a dedicated cross-expertise team that combines a leading shipping and logistics service with Finland’s number one talents in IT, intellectual property, data protection, privacy and competition law. Our approach is to combine knowledge of shipping, the maritime industry, technology markets and tendering processes with the right legal expertise to support our clients throughout the project lifecycle, from concept development to project execution.

We can help you with everything from traditional IT procurement to more comprehensive digital transformation projects, which are often international in character. Early involvement in these development projects will enable us to form an overall view of all the legal aspects involved and to help integrate them into your overall strategy.

The lawyers are careful - they do the smartest thing in each situation. They adopt not a dogmatic approach but do the most feasible thing.
