Technology & Procurement

Technology and data revolution in financial services

We advise leading financial services players on large-scale enterprise-wide technology projects, including outsourcing and managed services initiatives, cloud computing and virtualisation projects, and ICT and business process procurement arrangements.

We also advise leading financial services players on front-end customer-facing digital innovations - including in relation to mobile payment systems and delivery channels - which are of core strategic value and are setting the benchmark in customer experience and engagement. This includes advising clients on how best to leverage their data assets to drive innovation and deliver a competitive advantage.

Major government technology projects

Our team is proud to be advising our clients on some of the most significant technology projects currently occurring in the NSW government sector. This includes guiding our government clients through major technology transformations, managed services and outsourcing projects, and the whole of government framework for the procurement of ICT products and services.

Consumer-facing technology, e-commerce and m-commerce

Our clients are increasingly seeking our advice on the privacy implications of consumer-facing technology developments, including on the use of location-based functionality for the provision of real-time value-added services, online behavioural advertising in mobile apps and the deployment of Wi-Fi technology at retail and public locations.

We advise on privacy implications, the use and disclosure of data, security of data, cross border disclosure of information and implementation of privacy management frameworks, including the conduct of Privacy Impact Assessments.

We are also sought out by high-profile clients from Australia and overseas to advise on their mobile and website based e-commerce and m-commerce platforms and mobile applications. This includes advising on the application of telecoms regulations and online content regulation, the Australian Consumer Law, the Privacy Act, licensing arrangements and documentation with end users in relation to e-commerce and m-commerce ventures.
