King & Wood Mallesons
King & Wood Mallesons is Hong Kong’s second-largest local firm, and tackles data work through several different practice areas. Technology lawyer Peter Bullock takes on a variety of work, including advising challenger banks on the data aspects of new virtual banking licences.
The firm also advises in newer areas such as cryptocurrency. The firm’s presence in China – where it originated – means it is uniquely placed to advise on data issues there, as well. Recent work includes advising an FMCG manufacturer on a digitisation programme, which required a data audit and consent review across numerous jurisdictions.
