Technology & IP
Your technology, software, data, and intellectual property are valuable business assets that are part of your key competitive advantage. They therefore require optimal protection. In a constantly evolving technological environment, your advisers must combine proficiency in new technologies with extensive legal skills to prevent risks and assist if disputes arise.
You can rely on our experts in all our four home markets ( Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland) for clear and unambiguous contracts and solid and pragmatic dispute resolution. From contract drafting to negotiations, mediation or litigation, our team always has your business interests at heart.
Digital transformation is all about using the latest technology to improve your business model. Digital technology creates new business opportunities which in turn creates a whole new range of tax and legal challenges such as contracting, data protection, privacy questions, intellectual property, consumer protection and competition issues.
