Since the early days of his career, Martin Pflueger has been focusing his practice on advice in the area of information technology and data protection law, with a focus on the technology, life sciences and automotive industry. Not only from his various secondments with clients in the technology and pharmaceutical sector, including as European privacy counsel for a worldwide leading cloud computing service provider, Martin brings extensive experience in drafting and negotiating IT agreements, evaluating new technologies and digital business models, as well as advising clients on all aspects of data protection law, including cybersecurity matters.

Martin is recognized for having a deep understanding of the legal challenges clients are facing in connection with complex technology or outsourcing projects, the implementation of business processes in the field of deep digital transformation, or the handling of personal and non-personal data. He regularly advises clients on IT/IP related aspects in various commercial and corporate transactions. Martin's privacy practice covers all aspects of data protection law, including the coordination of multi-jurisdictional projects on European and international level – whether you are looking at managing your cross-border data transfers (including BCRs) or at handling health data, whether you need assistance with the drafting of privacy policies or transfer agreements, or seek advice on topics such as AI, Data Governance, IoT, Connected Cars, or general data protection compliance issues. He regularly represents companies in data protection law proceedings with the authorities or German courts, including civil law (mass-)claims for damages.

Martin studied law in Munich and spent parts of his legal training in Sydney. While working as a research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, he obtained a doctorate degree for his dissertation on the topic of international protection against unfair competition.
