Event Overview

Until recently, corporate legal teams and law firms often focused on the risks associated with new technologies and digitization altogether. However, digital transformation is taking hold in the legal industry and the scale of technology adoption on businesses is becoming more apparent – now more than ever before – right from collaboration platforms to cloud-based services and cybersecurity solutions. It has become the lifeline of all businesses irrespective of their size or industry sector.

In this webinar, we will be joined by legal experts from various sectors to discuss:

  • How lawyers are changing from risk mitigators to business enablers over the last three years and how this transformation has accelerated in times of Covid-19;
  • Transformational projects adopted to streamline legal operations and specific business areas; and
  • How lawyers re-adjust to the new way of work and life.

 

Chair

Adrian leads Linklaters’ Singapore-based TMT practice in Asia, specializing in data privacy and technology transactions. He has more than 13 years’ experience advising clients across the Asia Pacific region on commercial and regulatory issues involving their use of technology.

As businesses have increasingly focused on using data as a strategic asset, Adrian has worked with large conglomerates and corporates on projects to aggregate and more effectively use their data assets as part of their digital transformation process, including on data migration (such as migration to regional cloud hosting solutions) and advising on data breach issues. Adrian’s experience stretches from advising on the application of privacy laws to business operations and data flows, to the impact of implementing new technologies such as cloud computing.
