Intellectual Property, Information Technology and Data Protection
AMBOS’s understanding of the science behind technology, combined with our legal and dispute resolution skills, assures clients that we understand all aspects of every deal or litigation.
We give advice on contentious and non-contentious matters related to IP, IT, media, the Internet, e-commerce, and data protection. Our lawyers have been advising on these issues for more than two decades, meaning that we can place our clients’ questions and concerns in a wider perspective and provide practical goal-oriented advice.
AMBOS helps clients in building and protecting their intellectual property through the registration and management of trademark, model and domain name portfolios. We also assist in maintaining these rights.
Our Intellectual Property team gives advice on licence and distribution agreements and agreements regarding technology transfer, as well as competition law and other questions concerning regulations on the exploitation of intellectual property. We represent clients in Belgian and pan-European litigations on copyright, patents, trademarks, design rights and trade secrets.
Our experts have ample experience in the mediation and arbitration of licence agreements and other IP disputes for CEPINA, the Netherlands Arbitration Institute, the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center, the ICC, LCIA, and ICDR.
AMBOS works for companies who focus on information technology, as well as companies with other core businesses.
Information technology companies
We are involved in business organisation, commercial agreements, outsourcing, Internet issues, computer law and e-commerce, as well as possible disputes related to these subjects. Our specialists also provide advice on the viability and structure of innovative projects.
Our Information Technology experts also give IT advice to companies who have a core business different to information technology. We help in the protection of personal data, outsourcing and nearsourcing, e-commerce and litigations. Although it is not the key focus of these businesses, information technology often plays an essential role in the success of the company.
