Timelex has both opened its offices in the Sablon Tower for coworking, and has partnered with Workero to open up a legal ecosystem. In this article we’ll take a look at their breathtaking location and explore why Timelex has decided to open up for innovation.

Where law matches innovation

Before we ever set foot in the Timelex offices, we asked Geert Somers, partner at Timelex, what their offices were like. “We have an unparalleled view over Brussels,” he said, and he wasn’t exaggerating.

Situated on the 23rd floor of the Sablon Tower, Timelex looks out over all of Brussels in every direction. This means that each and every office in Timelex has its own spectacular view. It’s not something that you can really describe in words.

And it’s not just the view that draws one’s attention. The office has a vibrant feel to it: this is the location for you to work in if you want a studious atmosphere where things get done, but where lunch breaks are lively and animated by intellectual discussion and fun anecdotes.

As a dynamic and leading niche law firm in Europe, Timelex specialises in pioneering and ever-evolving areas such as online privacy and cyber security. As such, Timelex constantly strives to be informed and stay in the loop about all sorts of developments in diverse fields of the digital society. They are thus excited to welcome professionals from all fields to their offices!

More than opening their offices for colocation or coworking, Timelex is also opening its doors as a legal hub or ecosystem. With its mission to match law and innovation, Timelex wants to collaborate with startups, scale-ups, and other entrepreneurs, for the benefit of all parties.

On the one hand, since Timelex largely concerns itself with legal matters surrounding digital innovation, they want to help startups by teaching them the importance of concerning oneself with legal aspects at an early stage of the research and development process. By doing this, startups will boost their credibility and avoid costly mistakes. The focus of this ecosystem is all the legal aspects of the digital society, ranging from information technology, privacy & data protection and intellectual property, to media & electronic communications. You will learn how to apply privacy by design, how to negotiate with investors, how to protect your creations, know-how and inventions, how to set up your structure and generally how to implement contractual safeguards to make sure that any new products and services are legally viable.

On the other hand, since Timelex is such a pioneer in the digital realm, they want to stay abreast of the latest developments in this and other related fields. While they invest heavily in training and knowledge development of their lawyers and legal consultants, both about the law and about the industries and markets of their clients, they also like to connect with startups to find out first-hand about the challenges that these startups face.

“Ultimately, we want to create synergies between Timelex and startups and other ecosystem members. We want to create a space where technology and law can come together for the benefit of all parties involved,” highlights Geert.
