Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
Deacons, Hong Kong’s largest and longest established independent law firm, provides innovative and commercial solutions to help you develop and protect your business online.
As the development of online technologies continues to accelerate, the law can take time to catch up. Protecting and expanding your business in this ever-changing environment requires comprehensive legal knowledge, technical understanding and an innovative outlook.
We can help you reconcile the potential of the internet with the traditional approach to IP, advising on issues such as the protection and enforcement of IP online, content liability, policing and enforcement, domain name disputes, data privacy, e-commerce and electronic contracts, local law compliance, online and social media advertising and cross-border liability. Our IP lawyers represent everyone from leading international search engines and platform operators, website developers to content providers, and some of the world’s biggest e-commerce companies to those developing an online presence for the first time.
We regularly advise on complex and cutting-edge information technology and innovative business models in Hong Kong and Mainland China. Mainland China was the global leader in the digital economy even before COVID-19 and the pandemic has only accelerated the digitisation of business there. The importance of Mainland China’s consumer market and its rapid digital development cannot be underestimated. Our cross-border experience allows us to provide comprehensive advice at a time when major developments in technology have given rise to issues that challenge the existing commercial legal framework.
