Arthur's Legal: Pushing The Cutting Edge to Mainstream, while Creating New Cutting Edges

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Tech Law Firm By Design. Est. 2001

 

More than 16 years ago, 1 January 2001, Arthur's Legal started the first quarter by securing our first three stock listed companies in the technology, marketing and data brokerage industries for which we continue to work as legal counsel. During that first year we also started in the high-tech, pharmaceuticals, bio-energy and sustainable markets. Over the years we deepened our focus on structuring and supporting businesses involved in the tech world, including publicly listed, governmental, enterprise, SME, start up or early stage, whether IT, high-tech, data processing, chemicals, pharma, bio, clean, social, internet or other. In each and every case, we connect the left part of the brain with the right part, in our usual compact, 3D, yet no-nonsense style.

 

As global deal making experts, we have successfully closed more than 5.000 major commercial deals with the Fortune 2,000, sitting on both sides of the negotiation table. Furthermore, we have represented and advised local and international clients on VC, PE, corporate structuring, M&A and IPO transactions totalling several billions of Euros.

 

We accomplished all this with our highly skilled and committed team, working together with you and our partners and supported by our custom-designed business tools. Together we make a powerful team, thank you for joining forces with us.

 

And, as we continue to journey with you through each and every business cycle, we hope you are fully prepared for 2017 and beyond. Let’s stay connected so, together we could mine the opportunities and deliver the impact you envision and beyond while managing risks where appropriate. We are ready to engage and continue to push the cutting edge to mainstream, while creating new cutting edges.

DIGITAL:

 

Already for 15 years, Arthur's Legal has pushed the cutting edge to mainstream adoption and use, and continues to create new cutting edges. Such as for instance cloud computing, cybersecurity, internet of things, big data analytics, robotica, block chain and VR technologies. We both bring expertise, transparency and comfort to the table so our customers and its stakeholders can have impact and succeed in a durable way. On top of that we help companies and organisations innovate, applying those innovation in a real life environment, either physical or virtual, thus help creating new cutting edge technologies, frameworks, standards, state of the art practices and business models. We are ready to engage and do the same for you.

  

GLOBAL CLOUD COMPUTING STRATEGY:

 

Arthur’s Legal is official member of European Committee (EC) Cloud Select Industry Group on enterprise cloud computing & SLA’s (C-SIG SLA), and part of the expert group of five, the ‘Drafting Group’.

 

The current main results and successes have already been, in collaboration with for instance EC CONNECT, ENISA, EC JUST, Cloud Security Alliance, IBM, Microsoft and Telecom Italia the EC Cloud SLA Standardisation Guidelines (‘Standardization Guidelines’),  as well as accepted contributions to the new ISO/IEC 19086. The Drafting Group continues to be one of the main bodies to contribute to cloud services awareness, adoption and standardisation, both on EU as well international level.

 

Please read the EC Cloud SLA Standardisation Guidelines as well as the new ISO/IEC 19086.

NET FUTURES 2016, European Commission, Brussels, 20 April 2016: Arthur van der Wees, Managing Director of Arthur's Legal will speak about the Free Flow of Data .http://netfutures2016.eu/

 

In the DSM strategy the Commission recognised the importance of the data economy. Data technologies and services that can be used for the collection, processing or storage of data (e.g. cloud computing, big data, the Internet of Things), are essential factors of progress in the new era of digitalisation. In the section on “Maximising the growth potential of the Digital Economy” the DSM strategy committed the Commission to proposing a European ‘Free flow of data’ initiative to tackle restrictions on the free movement of data within the EU and unjustified restrictions on the location of data for storage or processing purposes. In addition, it stated that the initiative “(…) will address the emerging issues of ownership, interoperability, usability and access to data in situations such as business-to-business, business to consumer, machine generated and machine-to-machine data. It will encourage access to public data to help drive innovation”. Actors within the nascent European data market need predictability and legal certainty on these emerging issues, not just ‘data ownership’ and the other items listed but also liability arising from the use of data, in order to enter the market and invest in new business models, which is especially vital for European SMEs. Clarity on such emerging issues is also important for all European businesses because they need predictability to assess their current expenditure on research and on product innovation. Existing legal frameworks and current contractual practices may not be sufficient to provide actors in the data value chain with such predictability and legal certainty. Contractual practices may also create obstacles to the free and smooth flow of data or to data access as well as lock-in effects. The European Free Flow of Data Initiative is an important step at EU level to allow businesses, citizens, researchers and consumers to take full advantage of data technologies and services, such as better access to cloud services and better data analytics. A free flow of data will support connectivity between sectors and industries, lowering costs, stimulating research and innovation and unleashing the potential of new economic models.

OUR ONGOING PROJECTS & RECENT ACTIVITIES:

 
SLA Ready: EC has granted the two-year H2020 project regarding cloud computing and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) called ‘SLA Ready’ to the strong consortium: Cloud Security Alliance (EU), Technical University Darmstadt (DE), Trust-IT Services (UK/IT), Numergy (FR) and Arthur's Legal.

 

The main goal is to make (potential) business users in the EU aware of the opportunities, risks and rewards of cloud services and related SLAs, and making those services and SLAs usable for all to benefit from. With the Digital Economy as top priority of the new European Commission, this are quite interesting times. Please follow us on Twitter at @SLAReady, as the project will run in 2015 and 2016 with many interesting conferences, seminars and deliverables to come.

 

Please read SLA Ready in Brief.

 

Privacy Level Agreement (PLA): Arthur's Legal is a member of and contributor in the PLA Working Group of CSA, a team of data protection law processional familiar with cloud services (including several national Data Protection Authorities). The current deliverable that the WG has been working on is PLA v2 (to be make publicly available soon), which helps companies and organisations with a comprehensive framework on mandatory privacy laws and regulations in the 28 Member States of the EU, and provides them with a tool to evaluate achieving EU wide data protection. The level of privacy compliance is key; being 100% compliant in all cases is not. It is about being at least compliant on the mandatory laws and regulations.

 

A powerful self-regulatory tool to help cloud customers better understand and evaluate cloud service providers in the EU is now available here free of charge.

  

Ars Technica: Recently Arthur's Legal was invited as expert by Ars Technica in its expert panel on the Future of Cloud. In the particular live chat the main topic was 'Taking back privacy in the cloud'. Together with Ars Technica IT Editor, Sean Gallagher as moderator, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, New Jersey Institute of Technology and Arthur's Legal joined forces to discuss this interesting, and complex topic. Futhermore, Arthur's Legal is admitted and contributing as expert at for instance Sprout, Dutch Cowboys, De Ondernemer & Tijdschrift IT Management.

 

Cloud Architects Alliance: Arthur's Legal is part of the expert panel of the Cloud Architect Alliance conference, and continues to supporting and lecturing several governmental of departments about cloud computing. Main takeaways from this session: #Ethics, assurance, standardisation and certification as key enablers for both CSPs and customers.

 

Triple Play @ Cloud Expo Europe: This year at the Cloud Expo Europe in London, Arthur’s Legal contributed three times. live on stage (Business Theatre), as always multi-angle-tailored, for both CSPs and other vendors, as well as current or future cloud customers:

 

1. Arthur's Legal chaired the panel dialogue with Spanish based CSP Nexica and Canadian based backup expert Asigra about cloud security from a multi-angle, 3D perspective; what are the different implications of private, hybrid and private cloud, for CSPs, ecosystems and customers.

 

2. Arthur's Legal joined Microsoft and Computer Business Review in the panel dialogue about data and regulatory issues concerning privacy: What do CSPs, ecosystems and customers need to understand. 

 

3. Arthur’s Legal as consortium partner of @SLAReady took the audience on a vibrant journey about Service Level Objective checklists, SLA life cycles, standardisation, perception & facts, Experience Level Agreements, SLAs-for-a-day, USPs and market making, both on EU as well international level.

 

Main takeaways from this session: #Lack of understanding, possibilities and challenges is the main reason for slow uptake. #Experience of customer more important that most CSPs think. #Service and SLAs as the differentiator.

 

Cloud Banking Europe in London was another excellent event especially as many banks participated, including the major banks from all over Europe, including its C-level representatives and cloud architects.

 

Arthur's Legal joined HP, ABN AMRO and Mason Pinsent on stage in a panel dialogue about hybrid cloud, standardisation efforts of both EC, ISO and CSA, Arthur's Legal is all collaborating with, as well as SLAs, secSLAs, 3D Data, PLA efforts, privacy-by-design, certification, and upcoming cloud insurance and scalability.

 

Digital Europe, CloudWatchEU, CSA & EMC: Recently, Arthur's Legal contributed to the top rated webinar on cloud, data, security, legal, standards, the SLA Life Cycle, and customised SLAs: How to Negotiate a Proper SLA? The typical Arthur's Legal multi-angle, multi-stakeholder approach is the way to proceed. The recording thereof is available here.

Other Expert Contributions: So, Arthur’s Legal has already demonstrated in deliverables, action and passion it shares with both vendors and customers regarding the future of cloud.

 

Arthur’s Legal contributes, co-authors, independently endorses and advocates the view that both SMEs, large corporations and its end-users should be informed on all levels about the possibilities, opportunities, benefits and risks of cloud computing, on an (i) entry/first timer, (ii) medium/higher and (ii) complex/expert level. Arthur’s Legal does so, on all those levels.

 

More to come: also in the coming months, Arthur's Legal will be speaking or moderating at, or otherwise feeding and contributing to several other international cloud computing (related) conferences in Europe and other parts of the globe.
