The automotive sector is going through profound upheavals as a result of globalisation, technological progress, regulation and consumer demand.
Manufacturers, equipment producers and suppliers must therefore adapt: innovate, reimagine the client experience and the concept of mobility and transform their business models.
On the other hand, regulatory authorities, regional authorities and consumers are faced with evolving markets that involve the concentration of players, new offers, etc.
In order to tackle the various challenges faced by our clients, DS Avocats has put together an experienced multi-disciplinary team to advise all actors in the automotive sector. Our lawyers are constantly analysing the changes in the automotive market and supporting their private and public sector clients on a daily basis by providing legal advice and defending their interests.
Our team assists our clients at all stages of their projects in the automotive sector, and with all transactional and contentious matters related to public law, banking and finance law, company law, insurance law, competition law, tax law, intellectual property law, new technologies and data law.
Our lawyers are particularly attuned to the legal issues surrounding self-driving cars and to the corresponding questions of liability, ethics and personal data. The high number of actors who can be held liable (the driver, car manufacturer, fleet owner, the programmer of the algorithm that drives the artificial intelligence, the artificial intelligence itself, etc.) renders this sector even more complex, given the different areas of law that apply.
