… to think ahead
Every day, alongside the economic players who participate in the digital revolution of our daily lives, Altana anticipates the digital disruptions of the economy and society.
In a context of considerable increase in the value of companies’ intangible assets, increased investment in technology and innovation, and the hyper-judicialization of economic relations, the role of the lawyer in the digital revolution has become central.
Challenged every day by the new tools of artificial intelligence and data processing, Altana’s lawyers are constantly questioning the added value of their services, both in the analysis of cases and the choice of legal strategies, but also in the organization of the firm and the client experience.
