Pinsent Masons

Pinsent Masons’ Hong Kong data practice is predominantly advisory, with a focus on assisting clients on two fronts: GDPR compliance for companies operating out of Hong Kong and compliance with the China’s cybersecurity regime. Lawyers that cover data work typically have a relatively broad practice that might include more general corporate work – meaning those lawyers see more of the clients’ business and can offer holistic advice.

Like other big international firms operating in Hong Kong, the firm sees its European and US connections as a major advantage, as it can offer Hong Kong companies expertise on issues in multiple jurisdictions. Recent work includes advising Hong Kong’s competition authority on its data protection policy, and helping retail WiFi provider Fanswave establish and roll out its consumer data collecting technology in shopping centres in Hong Kong
