Hi to forum members - there's a lawyer in the building!  I have just joined u having recently returned from a long stint overseas working as broadly speaking a Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) lawyer.  This has meant stops in Australia, Hong Kong, Dubai and Qatar along the way.  I've worked in big law firms as a partner/Head of TMT Department as well as in-house with Vodafone and Dell Services.

 

I've picked up on a few earlier posts wondering if there are any friendly lawyers who actually understand what costs mean to tech companies, and who can be flexible in their work approach.  I have started my own law firm, Tech Law NZ, with website being built; meantime I'll keep an eye on the site and am more than happy to have a chat, from a legal viewpoint, about anything technology related, or to do with privacy, data protection, information security, IT procurement, contracting, cloud, outsourcing IoT, and the like.

 

Good to be on board.  I hope this isn't coming across as a too blatant pitch - I'm just happy to be on the site and open to giving help if I can.

Welcome & good luck.

 

It definitely would be nice to have a local legal perspective on some of the major overseas court decisions. Looking forward to hear what you've got to say.

Everywhere needs more lawyers. In the immortal words of Lionel Hutz:
