Just like last year and the years before, international law office time.lex has once again been recommended by Legal 500 and Chambers. These organizations annually publish a list of the best law firms per sector and per country, based on large-scale (customer) satisfaction surveys.
Legal 500 calls timelex probably THE top Belgian firm for IT law with a team that understands the business needs and excels in data protection and e-commerce.
They also refer to the prestigious time.lex cases, such as assisting the Privacy Commission in the case against Facebook, drawing up a model code of conduct for the European cloud industry on demand of the European Commission, the many new customers in the FinTech sector and the "outstanding performance" in the media sector.
Chambers emphasizes that the firm is engaged by both private companies and public institutions and scores highly on both an advisory level and on disputes.
In addition to the high reviews of the law firm, all of timelex's partners - Jos Dumortier, Geert Somers, Hans Graux, Edwin Jacobs and Frederic Debusseré - are listed and recommended individually in various specializations as "specially informed", "resourceful", "pragmatic" 'and' results-oriented '. Legal 500 has included Jos Dumortier in the list of Leading Lawyers in the field of IT and Telecom.
"We are again very proud of this recognition. This shows that we have earned our place as the legal specialist in the growing technology sector.", says Edwin Jacobs.
Geert Somers's conclusion: "The fact that our top expertise is praised in combination with the advantages of a medium-sized firm proves that we meet the expectations of our clients, in both the private sector as well as in government."
