WiseMen is a Dutch law firm situated in The Hague, that has been providing legal services to entrepreneurs since 1999. WiseMen focuses primarily on IT law.
Giving solid legal advice or conducting (successful) legal proceedings requires not only thorough legal knowledge but also extensive practical experience and insight into what is really relevant to our clients. Making clear agreements and fulfilling them is equally important. We strive for a long-term relationship with our clients. We have many clients that have been with us since the beginning.
Corporate Legal Counsels (IT)
WiseMen serves as a Virtual Legal Department for more than 250 IT companies and marketing & communications agencies. Most clients have outsourced their entire legal department to WiseMen.Some have implemented WiseMen as an “add-on” to their own internal legal department, thus acquiring WiseMen’s specific knowledge in many areas of law, such as corporate law, contract law, employment law and intellectual property law.
Interim IT lawyers
In addition to traditional legal services, WiseMen offers interim lawyers to companies and (government) organizations, with direct and active support of the Virtual Legal Department. These interim lawyers are specialized in IT law and therefore the ideal legal partner in purchasing IT.
What about the zero-hour employment contract?
In the Netherlands it is possible to agree on a zero-hour contract between employer and employee. A zero-hour contract ís an employment contract. In the contract is only not mentioned and therefore not agreed upon when and how often an employee is called for work and actually will work. Instead, the contract states that the obligation to perform the work is postponed until the on-call employee / employee is called by the employer to work.
Be careful with descriptive trade names!
Descriptive trade names have become increasingly popular in the current trade practice. Usually, the use of descriptive trade or brand names is motivated by marketing and communication consultants with the argument that companies are easier to find for customers searching for a product of service with that descriptive name.
