Our lawyers in the Technology Working Group have extensive experience in assisting tech companies in their operation and development in the fast growing age of modern technologies. We assist clients to develop their business regionally and globally in the areas of corporate structuring, operational transactions, fund raising, compliance and protection and exploitation of intellectual property rights.

 For the business operation of emerging tech companies, we have advised on the following:-


  • Development of a data protection policy (including personal data) and compliance of applicable laws
  • Development of competition policy and compliance of local applicable laws especially in the processes of procurement, tender and provision of tech services
  • Intellectual Property Rights (“IPR”), data protection (including personal data), anti-competition and the transfer of technologies and different types of tech operational agreements, including:-


  • Licensing and distribution Agreements of various IPR including TV channels, sports programmes, news clips
  • Film remake agreements
  • Software / SaaS / source code / website / mobile application development agreements
  • Procurement / suppliers / sub-contacting / tender agreements
  • Terms and conditions, disclaimers and privacy statements posted on websites or mobile applications
  • Data center colocation agreements, reselling agreements of broadband services and blockwiring agreements




As the core businesses of most of the tech companies are technology oriented, we have advised on the following:-

  • Whether the IPR is consistent with their business development
  • How to develop and exploit the IPR portfolio for expansion of local and overseas business and preparation of subsequent rounds of fund raising activities or IPO
  • How to manage the IPR
  • The significance of IPR due diligence and areas to focus when entering into technology-related agreements
