Safeguarding your rights
Matters pertaining to intellectual property and ICT demand expert advice and assistance and sometimes legal proceedings may be required. The essential point is that from the very beginning the right approach is chosen and rights are being safeguarded, the more so if it is a matter of cooperation with other parties. In all these areas Vivienne Verlinden is your legal advisor.
Intellectual property rights
Over a period of more than twenty years Vivienne Verlinden has gained knowledge and experience in the field of intellectual property rights. She gladly uses this knowledge and experience for your benefit. She has carried a lot of disputes to a successful conclusion, for example disputes about trademark rights, trade names and copy rights. Drafting and judging of various types of business agreements, including licence agreements, is part of the expertise of Vivienne Verlinden.
Vivienne Verlinden advises from the start of the negotiations until after the transfer. Her purpose at all times is to prevent problems by making clear arrangements about what parties may expect from one another and when. Should reality be obstinate, she will take care of your affairs with energy and inventiveness. Point of departure is that practically always a settlement is preferred. An entrepreneur for that matter is not exactly looking forward to legal cases that take a long time to litigate and the high costs and inevitable risks of being ordered to pay the costs of the proceedings they may entail. The purpose therefore is to find a solution that is acceptable to all parties involved.
Every entrepreneur is faced with privacy rules. The requirements imposed on the protection of personal data are becoming increasingly stringent whereas the technical possibilities to gather personal data, sometimes on a large scale, are broadening all the time. In this field of tension Vivienne Verlinden shall gladly advise you.
An eye for commercial interests
Vivienne Verlinden never loses sight of your commercial interests, which do not always run parallel with the legal reality. Because Vivienne Verlinden herself lives in an entrepreneurs’ environment she understands this like no other.
