Who are deJuristen?
deJuristen is a contemporary niche legal firm, and very proud of its unique pioneering role in Internet law on the Belgian market. As rebellious legal experts, our people combine their legal know-how with specific domain knowledge and innovative insights.
We stand for an open and transparent service that aims to provide a usable solution. Our creative approach continues to build on a thorough understanding of your problem, in which our hands-on partners remain closely involved throughout the entire process.
The team of deJuristen has its home base in Ghent and is led by Kris Seyen.
Question or legal conflict? We are ready with clear, to-the-point and useful advice.
Technology is an integral part of our society. The speed of technological developments and their impact on our daily lives cannot be overestimated. Opposite this innovative, disruptive world of thought is the unwieldy inertia of the regulator and the risk-averse world of those who have to apply the rules.
What about copyrights on creations by artificial intelligence? How do we regulate the liability of autonomous systems such as self-propelled cars? What rights can you claim on big data? How does my right to privacy relate to other rights?
deJuristen want to build a bridge here by embracing technology, with an eye for new legal systems and how these can give direction to technological developments.
