My name is Joost Mosselman and I have been practising as a lawyer for over 15 years. My specialisms are IT law and privacy. In my daily work, I assist entrepreneurs in drawing up IT contracts and advise them on a wide range of topics, such as IP rights, e-commerce and platforms and artificial intelligence. I also advise my customers on a broad range of privacy issues. In addition, I have extensive experience in litigation on (failed) software implementation projects both before courts and arbitral tribunals.
My clientele is very diverse. I work for (large) IT service providers and municipalities, but also, for example, for start-ups that want to exploit technological innovations. I also advise many customers who purchase IT services or products. My clients appreciate my commitment and pragmatic way of working. I have a strong analytical approach and am able to quickly reduce complex IT language to its essential core. As a result, I am able to provide not only high-quality, but above all clear advice to my clients.

Three questions for Joost
I am a specialist in IT law and privacy. I advise and litigate on various commercial contracts and on issues involving software and technology as a common denominator. I also provide advice on privacy issues and am an experienced data protection officer.
I am pragmatic and quickly get to the heart of the matter. This is vital in order to draw up clear contracts on sometimes complex technologies.
I successfully represented a French company in international arbitral proceedings against its software (ERP) provider. My client had suffered damage because the software supplied to them was of inferior quality. The arbitrator confirmed my client's claims and ordered the software vendor to pay compensation.
