Our Communications & Multimedia practice group advises on communications and multimedia matters, information and communications technology matters, e-commerce, corporate commercial matters, data protection and privacy laws and competition laws.
As one of the first legal firm to practise in the field of communications and multimedia in Malaysia, we have extensive experience in representing major communications (fixed and mobile) and multimedia providers in various matters. Our clients also benefit from our in-depth knowledge gained through our participation in the drafting of the Communications & Multimedia Act 1998 and the Malaysian Communications & Multimedia Commission Act 1998, which is one of the first set of legislation (if not the first) to regulate the converging telecommunications and broadcasting industry.
Through our many years of advising clients in this industry, we have a good understanding of the industry and its history. This understanding and experience helps us to not just give our clients legal advice but also practical solutions.
Our areas of practice include:
