Department profile submitted by Rajah & Tann (Thailand) Limited
R&T Asia (Thailand)'s TMT practice frequently advises on data protection and data privacy issues, particularly in contentious circumstances, such as in the context of investigations and employment law litigation (e.g. regarding internal and government investigations into issues such as anti-corruption, customs and competition law matters), where it is a core concern for multinational clients.
The practice draws on the strength of our regional presence, our wide-ranging experience with local, regional and international clients, and in particular the highly ranked TMT practice in our Singapore head office. We have leveraged off this core expertise in our head office to develop work for market leaders such as Google and Facebook.
Our team has represented telecoms companies such as Telenor, for many years in Thailand, focusing on a number of regulatory areas. We also represent DTAC in relation to various concession-related disputes and other TMT aspects of their business.
We have identified data protection and data privacy as a key area of concern and have committed substantial resources to monitoring developments in this area. Our partners, Supawat Srirungruang and Saroj Jongsaritwang, frequently speak on data protection topics as well.
