Gijsbert Brunt – TMT/IP LItigation

 

For more than twenty years, Gijsbert Brunt has been engaged in the field of IT, intellectual property, media and privacy. Because of his long time involvement in the developments in the world of IT Gijsbert knows all legal ins and outs. More than anything else, expertise in this field is linked with profound knowledge of the business sector. Gijsbert is available for assistance in a wide range of issues; from illegal copying software, hijacking domain names to outsourcing projects. When it comes to conflicts in this sector in Gijsbert’s experience the sting is often to be found in unfulfilled expectations and miscommunications. Not surprisingly, Gijsbert often opts for mediation in the interest of his clients. However, if necessary Gijsbert will not shy away from vigorous oral pleadings; he has a broad experience in litigation. In the field of media Gijsbert is mainly involved in assisting clients with respect to wrongful media reports.
