Intellectual property, IT & Privacy

Every business handles personal data, including data relating to employees, customers and/or prospects. The processing of this data must comply with strict privacy regulations. Non-compliance with these rules is punishable by fines. Personal data is often processed electronically in IT applications, which means that privacy and information security are inextricably linked.

With good agreements on the design, liability, and continuity of the IT solution, certain problems can be prevented. Doing business also requires that you invest in your products and services on a daily basis. These investments need to be protected. Our specialists can advise on the protection, management and exploitation of your intellectual property rights.
