Ingo Braun is specialized in the areas data protection, insurance, employment and regulatory. His clients appreciate his broad knowhow and the practicality of the solutions offered.

Large international corporations, but also Austrian start-ups and medium-sized companies trust in Ingo Braun’s advice in the field of data protection – and not only since the GDPR came into force – and with respect to contracts concerning IT and copyrights. A key focus of his work is the implementation of data protection measures concerning personnel as well as in employment matters. His advice is particularly practice-oriented and especially aims at avoiding the high penalties for violations of data protection regulations. You do not just get a document pressed into your hand by Ingo Braun. You will also receive a guideline for the use and alternatives for certain applications.

Ingo Braun advises insurers and reinsurers in particular on the settlement of major claims and the defence of coverage claims, i.e., he represented an insurer in defending against claims by the tunnel operator after a vehicle caught fire in the tunnel and the tunnel had to be closed to traffic for a longer period of time.
