IT & Privacy

The focus of our Information technology team is to advise on and draw up complex contracts
that revolve around new technology, intellectual property law, data security, data protection
and privacy law for hardware manufacturers, software developers, IT-related service providers
and their clients.

We advise our national and international clients when it comes to drawing up IT and technology
contracts within the context of strategic partnerships, joint ventures or the sale of technology. Our area of expertise comprises electronic trading and communications, software licences, cybersecurity and cybercrime, technology transactions, information technology, outsourcing, cloud computing (PaaS,IaaS, SaaS), online advertising, drones, smart cars, artificial intelligence, robotics, online gaming and gambling as well as social media.

Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) took effect, the manner in which personal data is processed has become an essential part of general risk management for companies. We assist our clients to become and remain compliant with this complex privacy legislation.

We conduct privacy audits to verify compliance with the GDPR and perform data protection impact assessments. We clean up privacy policies, cookie policies, information security policies, data processing agreements, data sharing agreements, joint controller agreements and data subject access requests (DSAR’s). We assist with international transfers of personal data (by means of standard contractual clauses, binding corporate rules, etc.) and data subject opposition and right to be forgotten requests.

We also advise our clients on preventing, detecting and reporting data leaks. When it comes to intellectual property, we have a great deal of experience in respect of advising and handling disputes concerning trademark law, copyright law, designs and models law, patent law, open source, domain name and database rights, and enforcing these rights and laws by means of attaching property or court proceedings.
