Pellicaan Advocaten can also advise you on other relevant areas of law

IT law does not stand alone. Much of the advice we give or the agreements we draw up also require knowledge of other areas of law. Also within your organisation you will often have other legal questions which you probably prefer to put to one office.

We therefore consider it an advantage that we can easily obtain knowledge from other lawyers and legal experts working in the following areas of law (among others):

  • Privacy law | Personal data are processed in almost all IT solutions and applications. This means that knowledge of privacy law is indispensable;
  • Company law | In the case of outsourcing and joint ventures and other forms of collaboration, knowledge of company law is essential;
  • Labour law | IT projects may also involve secondment or other forms of flexible employment. For example, knowledge of the doctrine of the "transfer of an undertaking" and the legal impact thereof may be relevant in an outsourcing project.

You can find an overview of all our in-house expertise on our expertise page.

Distinctive through our cooperation with other experts

Some IT-related issues also require advice from other experts. Examples include cybersecurity specialists, IT auditors or tax specialists. We are used to working in a multidisciplinary team. We consider that one of the interesting and enjoyable aspects of our work! If you are looking for a particular specialist, we will be happy to put you in touch with that specialist from our network.
