Geert Somers has been working for more than 20 years in IT, privacy and data protection, cyber security and intellectual property law matters. He likes the legal and compliance challenges of technological developments and the connected society (such as big data, internet of things and artificial intelligence). The constant drive of his niche law firm Timelex is to match the law and innovation.
With clients mainly including multinationals and governments, Timelex sees great value in Privacy Rules as an international network of legal and technical experts.
Given the very in-depth experience of the firm with the European GDPR, Geert decided to chair the PrivacyRules European Committee, as it helps consolidate knowledge and experience of this ever-growing and fascinating area of law.
