23.10.2017 BE law

Our Competition law and TMT teams have the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar on Innovative Partnerships, which will take place at our offices on 24 November 2017.

The digitizing economy pushes enterprises to create synergies and invest in innovative partnerships with competent and specialized service providers, allowing them to focus on their core business. Efficient partnerships require clear and sustainable contractual arrangements. Also, partnerships may involve the leveraging of significant market powers.

In this session, we will focus on key contractual terms inter alia on protecting your IP, know-how and other intangible assets, the rights to data, respective liabilities etc. We will also focus on arrangements that could be sensitive from a competition law perspective and workable solutions.

Our teams will share our best practices and discuss their insights with you. This seminar will be moderated by Hendrik Viaene, head of our Competition Law practice and by Erik Valgaeren, head of the TMT practice. Introductory presentations to the topic will be given by Delphine Gillet, senior associate in the Competition Law practice and Carolien Michielsen, junior associate in the TMT practice.

To ensure that the debate will be conducted most effectively, we inform you that attendance is limited to one person per company.

This expert meeting will take place at our offices in Brussels on the 24th of November 2017, from 12:00pm tot 2:00pm.
