The Cloud Act and potential conflicts for Swiss companies

Clara-Ann Gordon – NZZ am Sonntag

Niederer Kraft Frey partner Clara-Ann Gordon was interviewed by the Swiss national newspaper NZZ am Sonntag in the context of the Cloud Act, which was introduced in the United States and which allows access to data on servers outside the USA.

In the article “Die Macht des Stärkeren”, Clara-Ann Gordon points out the conflicts caused by the US law for Swiss companies and international cloud operators that have data centers in Switzerland. In order to avoid potential divergences between American and Swiss law, she advocates for a bilateral agreement with the USA.
