Ventoux is a Dutch niche law firm for legal advice on the exploitation and protection of intellectual capital. Ventoux specializes in intellectual property (IP), privacy, advertising, media and information technology (IT) law. 

Intellectual property

Intellectual property – trade marks, trade names, copyrights, designs, domain names, neighbouring rights, patents, databases, goodwill and know how – have become more and more important as business assets. Ventoux assists multinationals as well as start-ups in the development, implementation and protection of new business models by providing a legal framework to safeguard and exploit the creation of intellectual capital by innovations. We help you identifying, protecting, making available, structuring, licensing and enforcing your IP rights where necessary. Our recent experience includes IP and unfair competition litigation concerning toys, industrial designs, clothing, shoes and electronic equipment.

Privacy and Data protection

We advise organizations on privacy, cookies and data protection. We take a hands-on approach and give practical advice. We have provided advice on privacy issues, including compliance, policies and statements, to a large number of clients. 


Advertising serves a critical purpose for any business and the forms through which advertising can be achieved continuously change and increase. Ventoux advises on both the traditional and modern forms of advertising and has extensive litigation experience about (misleading and comparative) advertising concerning the telecommunications industry and medical devices.


Changes and innovation are at the heart of the media and telecom industry sector. Product cycles are short and the landscape for national broadcasting is changing rapidly. Ventoux is active in the full spectrum of the media and telecommunication sector and in all relevant aspects of the law, such as contracts, litigation and regulatory. Closely related is the sports sector, in which we are actively involved by advising on i.a. sponsorships, broadcasting issues and protocols.

information Technology

Information technology and other forms of technology have become the nucleus of almost every organization. Ventoux keeps up to date with the development of new technologies and advises clients on the legal issues associated with the development, implementation and exploitation of these new technologies. Our recent experience includes advice on cloud and website security to e-commerce companies.

Public procurement

Ventoux advises on national and EU procurement issues to several tiers of government and companies.


Ventoux is a member of the IT IP Law Group Europe, a pan-European network of independent law firms in the areas of intellectual property and information technology law. Ventoux also networks with law firms outside its main areas of expertise (both nationally and internationally). That way we can offer high quality services and, if necessary, work with a team of lawyers that is best suited for a particular matter or client.
