Technology, Data, Cyber & AI

Across all sectors, technology and data are transforming the way organisations operate 

The opportunities and challenges surrounding the digital economy require lawyers with deep experience advising on business-critical projects, and expertise dealing with the increasingly complex regulatory and risk environment.

Companies need to be able to successfully navigate large-scale technology development, procurement and transformation projects, manage cyber risk incidents, implement data governance programs, and advise on the procurement and use of new generative AI tools.

How we can help

We are a leading technology and data firm in Australia. We work with clients on the most complex and challenging digital projects: identifying emerging opportunities and risks, applying our market expertise and knowledge of cutting-edge developments, then helping define the best course of action that complies with regulatory frameworks and internal risk profiles.

Breadth and depth

Our expertise covers all aspects of commercial contracting and regulatory and risk advice in the digital economy – from hardware and software procurements and development arrangements, major technology services deals, cybersecurity, data privacy, connected infrastructure, personalised healthcare, payments and technology innovation, and investment in technology for decarbonisation, all the way to M&A transactions.

We advise clients in all sectors from banking, infrastructure and industrials, to healthcare, energy, real estate and technology, media and telecommunications.

External relationships and working with regulators

Our productive relationships with the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner, and thorough knowledge of how it operates, are the product of extensive interactions. We also help shape the regulatory agenda through our representation on, and work with, industry bodies and our contributions to government legislative reform processes.
