Digital and technology

A new technology revolution is in full swing. Rapid advances in technology, connectivity and computer processing power are combining to create an exciting array of new opportunities. While a more interconnected, digital world may bring challenges, we are firmly focused on helping our clients realise the opportunities. We embrace this revolution both as a business and as advisers.

Integrated approach with a global perspective

Our Digital & Technology (D&T) legal professionals frequently work with specialists in PwC Consulting, Strategy, Deals, Tax and Risk Assurance to provide best practice, solution-focused advice. The lawyers bring a wealth of experience gained on D&T mandates in Hong Kong/China, across Asia Pacific and beyond, leveraging their sector-relevant legal skills and understanding of technology as part of an integrated and holistic team supporting you at any, or all, stages of your project.

Increasingly, digital transactions are occurring in a 'territory agnostic' fashion and often require careful consideration of the regulatory environment across multiple jurisdictions. Accordingly, we draw upon the expertise of the world’s most extensive legal network, with 3,600 lawyers in nearly 100 territories, including coverage in 15 countries across Asia Pacific. We work extensively with other members of the PwC global network of firms to provide our clients with end-to-end legal services.

Our team

Our D&T legal team consists of highly experienced and tech-savvy lawyers, delivering the expertise demanded by our clients and willing to challenge the status quo.
