Ernst-Jan van de Pas considers himself a 'tech lawyer'. He focuses specifically on IT law, privacy and intellectual property. His everyday practice consists of the review and drafting of complex IT agreements, such as contracts pertaining to the purchase, installation and implementation of business-critical hardware and software (including SaaS and cloud contracts), the elaboration and negotiation of collaboration agreements (e.g. technology partnerships and MES agreements) as well as RD agreements, licensing contracts, exploitation agreements and general terms and conditions. His practice also extends to privacy law and includes, among other topics, consultancy on technological developments (such as SaaS, Cloud, Big Data, Internet of Things) in the context of IT and privacy law. In addition to this, Ernst-Jan benefits from considerable consulting, mediation and litigation experience in disputes relating to IT, privacy and intellectual property. His client base includes hospitals and other healthcare institutes, municipal and provincial authorities and water boards, as well as large and smaller businesses from start-ups to multinationals.
