Van Iersel Luchtman and Dutch Game Garden are starting a promising partnership. Van Iersel Luchtman is currently the only law firm in the Netherlands with a full-service legal team for the games industry. They assist and advise developers, publishers, and other parties in all their legal matters and challenges.

Regular visitors to Dutch Game Gardens (DGG) monthly network lunches, the incubation program or industry event INDIGO will recognize René Otto from Van Iersel Luchtman (VIL). The attorney recently won the award for “Game Changer” at the Game Bakery Awards for his legal contributions to the game industry. Within VIL, René Otto is heading the legal team for the games industry and his team consists of specialists in a wide range of legal areas, such as IP, contracts, employment, and corporate law.

“A successful and inspiring collaboration has now evolved into a structural partnership.” says René Otto. The VIL games team will support DGG on a regular basis with advice and contributions to the incubation program, Game Garden Agency, and INDIGO. As of November, VIL is now the main sponsor of the monthly network lunch.

JP van Seventer, Managing Director of Dutch Game Garden is passionate about the partnership. “This is a great step for Dutch Game Garden and its community. While Dutch Game Garden and Van Iersel Luchtman were allies before, with this partnership we can achieve even more for the Dutch game industry as a whole.”
