has a global, fully integrated group of IPT teams that operate in the markets of greatest importance to our multinational clients. The global IPT group consists of 55+ offices, 140+ partners and 500+ fee earners in more than 20 countries. Committed to our values in relation to corporate ... responsibility, our Belgian team continued to advise charities and international institutions on a pro bono basis. During the past year, we assisted EURORDIS, the European Association for Rare Diseases, on a wide range of issues, including data protection, direct marketing, e-commerce and intellectual property. In addition, we supported Amnesty International on the preparation of consultancy agreements and assisted Oksigen Lab (which coaches social entrepreneurs) on educating entrepreneurs on the protection and distribution of software. Our Belgian team continuously develops innovative processes and methodologies to improve the delivery of our legal services to our clients, as well as the internal organisation of our clients. The whole IPT team is fully dedicated to advising on IT, media and telecommunications matters. We act for both customers (large users of IT) and large IT vendors, which gives us an invaluable insight at both sides of the negotiation table and which we believe translates into better, more commercial and more pragmatic advice for our clients.
