ITechLaw 2010 European Conference

28–29 October 2010 • Berlin, Germany • Hotel Adlon Kempinski

Michael Peeters
Partner, Pinsent Masons LLP; Leeds, UK

Michael Peeters is a UK-based technology lawyer.  His career started with Clifford Chance, but 18 years ago he set up an IT law team with Pinsent Masons LLP, where he now works with a team of 120 technology lawyers, one of Europe's largest.  Pinsent Masons LLP is one of the leading specialist technology law firms in the UK, advising users and suppliers of technology products and services.

His team advises on all aspects of technology law, and a major area is outsourcing; where Mr. Peeters leads on large-scale outsourcing projects, acting more often for the user/customer.  While the practice has an obvious bias toward UK law and practice, it is increasingly an EU-wide practice, with alliances across Europe and clients from outside the EU, requiring an EU-wide view.

Mr. Peeters is a Board Member of ITechLaw and is a regular speaker at international IT law events.
