Managing Partner Dirk Van Gerven, commenting on the appointments: "In the digital era, our multidisciplinary Benelux team focusing on data protection, cybersecurity and IT law plays an important role in responding to the legal needs of our clients arising from data-driven opportunities, a constantly evolving digital landscape and technology-enabled innovation. We are convinced that Peter's in-depth knowledge of technology and technical expertise will allow us to further strengthen our services in these areas of law. We also look forward to seeing Nathalie and Pierre, long-standing members of the Banking & Finance team who have been with us since the start of their law careers as trainees, grow in their new role.
