We are proud to announce the establishment of our Technology, Multimedia and Telecommunications (“TMT”) Law department to enhance and streamline our provision of a diverse range of legal services tailored to companies and individuals alike in the TMT industries. These include mergers and acquisitions, commercial contracts, hardware, software and services procurement, privacy and data protection, regulatory issues and dispute resolution.
The department is headed by Ivan Ho Yue Chan, who has acted for technology companies in relation to licensing agreements, supply contracts and system integration agreements as well as other companies in relation to technological matters.
