Schoenherr Prague advised Spanish manufacturer Torrot Electric Europa, S.A. ("Torrot") on the delivery of complex technology solutions for scooter sharing (including also electric scooters, advanced IT technologies and IT services) to ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab s.r.o. ("ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab"), which will use them for its new e-scooter sharing service BeRider in Prague. The legal advice also included the setting up of conditions for future cooperation and use of IP rights in the field of scooter sharing technologies.

"We were delighted by the opportunity to support Torrot and ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab in such an exciting project," said Schoenherr partner Vladimír Čížek, who led the advisory team. "The sharing of electric vehicles in bigger cities is both ecological and economical and all parties believe in its commercial potential and expansion."

Torrot is a Spanish leader in the field of electric scooters and bicycles. The company designs technologically and ecologically advanced vehicles and sharing technologies hoping to revolutionise mobility in cities as we know it. The BeRider electric scooters have a range of up to 70 km.

ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab, based in Prague, develops innovative and creative mobility solutions. One of its latest mobility projects, the Citymove application, shows the best possible routes through Prague. Users simply choose the mode of transport, whether public transport, bike sharing, taxi or walking. Scooter sharing is planned to be the next mode of transport included in the Citymove app.

The Schoenherr team was led by Vladimír Čížek (partner, Prague, corporate/m&a), who was further supported by Viktor Pakosta (attorney-at-law, Prague, corporate/commercial/real estate), Eva Bajáková (attorney-at-law, Prague, IP/regulatory) and Stanislav Bednář (attorney-at-law, Prague, IP/dispute resolution).
