Pangea Net Annual Report 2023-2024

In a few days, we’ll all gather in Kolding, Denmark, for our network’s 15th AGM.

This year’s host, our Danish member firm Andersen Partners, has put a lot of efforts into preparing a great program and, to our greatest delight, all member firms but one, together with two guest firms will be present, generating a record attendance of 108 participants (excluding participants from our member firm Andersen Partners)!

It will be a great occasion to
catch up with old and new friends, meet colleagues from our new members from Belgium (Kwint – we now have two member firms in Belgium), Austria (BLS) and Australia (Blackbay Lawyers), get to know our guest firms from Norway and Canada, and have fun and connect.

I’m certain we’ll all make it worthwhile!

In 2023, the average cost of a data breach has reached a record high (once more). In addition to those costs and reputational damage, companies should also be wary of the penalties that can be imposed.
In this edition of the newsletter of our Pangea DICL team, we focus on the consequential world of data protection, shedding light on noteworthy sanctions and rulings by data protection authorities regarding insufficient technical and organisational measures to ensure information security.

We’ve just wrapped up our 14th Annual General Meeting … and it was another huge success! Our hosts, Belgium member firm Litiguard Advocaten, organized a fantastic 2 ½ days for our network in the beautiful city of Antwerp.

Our members joined from all over and got to catch up, pick each other’s brain, sharpen their knowledge, talk shop and of course, share a great time together.

The Board wishes to thank the hosts Litiguard Advocaten for the care, ideas and time that went into the preparation of this great event, guest speaker Xavier Biot for broadening our minds and understanding of Decarbonization goals and challenges, as well as all our members for making Pangea Net such a vivid, active, high-quality international network of independent law firms.

DICL Practice Group – Newsletter 5

It would be impossible to ignore the rise of AI over the past few months – with ChatGPT taking most of the headlines but facing competition from Google’s Bard and from Amazon and Facebook’s own AI offers.
With AI taking the headlines of the day it’s easy to forget about some of the other news stories that were (and may yet be) the next big thing, whether that be the continued evolution of the GDPR, the rise of the Metaverse or the implementation of new laws around digital services.
It’s a challenging time to be a data lawyer – with lots of potential distractions. In this issue we’ve picked up various of these ongoing themes, taking the perspective of different jurisdictions

Pangea Net Annual Report 2021-2022

In a few weeks, we will finally meet again, after more than two years of a forced break. We, from the Board and our friends from Babiaczyk Skrocki I Wspolnicy, were so relieved to see that the virus wave is finally diminishing, which comforted us in our decision to maintain a physical AGM in Poznan, Poland. And then the war started… This year’s AGM seems to be defying all odds. I know that, to some of you, the mere idea of having a fun time while Europe – and Poland in particular – is hosting millions of Ukrainian refugees may seem inadequate. I am convinced, however, that even under these dramatic circumstances, this meeting makes a lot of sense. You may want to look at it this way: the AGM is – after all – a place where people from many countries gather peacefully with open hearts, exchange their views, open their minds to those of the other network members.

Pangea Net Annual Report 2020-2021

What a start it has been into 2020… with this mind-blowing AGM in India – my head is full of joy when I think of the time we had in Delhi and Agra. A great thank you and a big applause one more time to Pankaj and his team from ILG India! And what a dramatic shift it took as of March… My fair guess is that it was a challenging year for all of us, both from a professional and personal point of view.

Pangea Net Annual Report 2015-2016

It’s incredible to believe that we are no approaching our eighth AGM and this is the second edition Pangea Net’s Annual Report. I was delighted to receive such a positive response to last year’s report which was very much a “first attempt”. The Board would really like to build on the concept going forward and hope that you find this year’s edition to be equally interesting, if not more so.
