Legal ICT is not a traditional law firm. We do not initiate or defend lawsuits but instead focus on our speciality: providing practical legal advice about the Internet and IT.
In our experience, legal conflicts can often be avoided by well-drafted contracts and pragmatic, business-driven solutions. In most cases, particularly in the field of IT, a resolution out of court is simply the most rational outcome for all parties involved. If going to court is really necessary or unavoidable, we can refer you to several excellent attorneys.
Legal ICT is an international law firm specialized in ICT/IT, privacy, and intellectual property law.
We provide practical and concrete legal advice that you can work with right away. All of our legal advisors have a thorough understanding of both the legal and technological aspects of ICT law. This enables us to tailor our advice for a diverse portfolio of clients, who range from multinationals to SMEs and start-ups. We are currently based in Brussels, at the heart of European law-making, and are particularly focused on advising clients who are, or wish to become, active across multiple jurisdictions in the EU.
Just like our clients, we like to innovate. We are constantly finding new ways to help our clients. A prime example of this is the legal document generator of our partner Juridox. The generator can be used to quickly, efficiently, and affordably create legal documents tailored to your specific situation and needs. This solution is perfect for start-ups and SMEs who wish to professionalize their businesses and minimise legal risks.
Our drive for innovation also influences our own work processes, which we constantly try to improve with the use of new technologies. By doing so, we are able to offer high quality legal advice at competitive prices.
Another area in which we like to innovate is in relation to our business model. In our ambition to be more customer-centric than traditional law firms, we are happy to work on the basis of a fixed price per project and have developed several subscription models for a flat monthly fee.
You may have noticed that we use the terms ICT (information and communication technology) and IT (information technology) interchangeably. Due to a process known as ‘convergence’, most information and communication technologies nowadays are digital – in other words, they may be classed as IT – and consist of combinations of computing devices (such as PCs, smartphones, and servers), the Internet, and specialized networks based on the Internet Protocol (IP).
Technological developments, such as convergence, occur much faster than laws can ever be adapted. To properly apply laws to the current technological reality is a constant challenge, because these laws were often written with a very different or outdated technological reality in mind. At Legal ICT, we enjoy this challenge and are passionate about harnessing our legal and technological expertise to provide high quality, practical advice.
Legal ICT was established in 2010 as the international department of mother company ICTRecht in Amsterdam, advising clients on international matters in the English language. Nowadays, Legal ICT can be found in Brussels, at the heart of legal developments in the EU. ICTRecht and Legal ICT have recently expanded to around sixty employees in total.
Legal ICT also understands the bigger picture.
