Anton Ekker

As a lawyer, I advise, contract and litigate on the legal aspects of large-scale and complex data processing, with a focus on privacy and ICT law.

Through the years, I have gained extensive experience with different types of clients and legal issues. Therefore, I’m able to quickly identify opportunities and obstacles. I always strive for pragmatic solutions and for personal and informal contact with the client.

From 2009 to 2014 I was legal counsel to the Dutch National ICT Institute in Healthcare (Nictiz). In this position I have gained specific expertise in the field of eHealth and electronic data processing in healthcare.

Prior to my career in the legal profession, I obtained my PhD at the Institute for Information Law (IViR) of the University of Amsterdam on the fundamental protection of anonymous communication.

I provide various courses in the field of privacy law and speak frequently about various legal topics.

In the register of jurisdictions of the Dutch Bar Association I have registered the following main (and sub) jurisdictions:

  • Privacy law
  • Information law (IT law)
  • Civil Procedural Law (Litigation)

On the basis of this registration, I am obliged to obtain ten training points in each registered main legal area every calendar year according to the standards of the Dutch Bar Association.
