The integration of a team of four professionals from CSV Consulting strengthens the firm's commitment to technological legal advice.

Andersen continues to expand and boost its areas of expertise and its commitment to legal consultancy in technological matters with the reinforcement of the Legaltech area, which is consolidated with the integration of a new team led by Carlos Rodríguez Sau, who joins as a partner.

The firm has added four new professional experts in technological compliance to the area, coming from the firm CSV Consulting. Specifically, Carlos Rodríguez Sau as partner and head of the department, Antonio Cano, who joins as Senior Associate, and María Lasala and Cristina Durante, as associate and lawyer respectively.

The incorporated team specialises in technology law in its broadest sense, covering the protection and management of intangible assets, technology contracting, digital identity and digital trust services, etc. In this regard, it has developed control models and regulatory compliance processes, a prelude to RPAs (Robotic Process Automation or Software Robotics), with special emphasis on the areas of privacy, cybersecurity and technological intellectual property, especially in the financial sector. 

Carlos Rodríguez Sau holds a degree in Law from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and a diploma in EU Law from the Universidad San Pablo CEU and a Master's degree in Corporate Legal Consultancy from IE Law School. He has more than 24 years of professional experience in which he has been a partner at PwC, as head of the national intangibles and Technology Law practice, at Ecix Group and at CSV Consulting, specialising in software compliance.

Antonio Cano, who holds a degree in Law and Business Management and Administration from the University of Granada and a Master's degree in Corporate Legal Consultancy from IE Law School, has more than 12 years of experience in legal advice on New Technologies.

The team is also joined by María Lasala, who has more than 7 years of experience in legal advice and specialises in information society services and e-commerce, consumers and users and new technologies, and Cristina Durante, who has specialised in technological contracts and intellectual and industrial property during her years of practice. 

Andersen’s Managing Partners José Vicente Morote and Íñigo Rodríguez-Sastre, highlighted the experience of the new team and the reinforcement of this area, which "redoubles the firm's commitment to highly specialised legal advice focused on new technologies". "The new department joins the magnificent capabilities we already have in Cybersecurity, Data Protection, Privacy and New Technologies and Digital Platforms and allows us to take another step forward in the comprehensive service that the firm offers its clients, adapting to the present and future needs of the market and companies," they said.

On this point, they stressed the importance of strengthening this area, given that "currently the largest business projects are associated with this service, for the design and implementation of regulatory compliance processes for clients, which reduce the risk of regulatory infringement and generate evidence of compliance with the control authorities".
