The technology sector is undoubtedly one of the fastest changing areas of law globally. The position in Malaysia is no exception, and we have seen a recent push by the Government to keep abreast with these changes and to continue in its efforts to promote the Multimedia Super Corridor initiative launched in 1997. Related to this, there has also been an introduction of a host of benefits and incentives for broadband and next generation network elements.
Our lawyers recognise that technology rarely sits in isolation, and commit ourselves to constantly keeping up with emerging technologies and changes in trends to meet our clients’ needs. We appreciate the importance of technology from the user’s and developer’s perspective, and have acted for conventional businesses and technology companies, both local and foreign. We have worked across a broad range of sectors in fields such as electronic commerce, cloud computing technologies, service and system integration, outsourcing and personal data protection.
We are familiar with the application for licenses and permits from regulatory bodies governing the technology industry. Our lawyers have worked with, among others, the Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) on individual and class licenses for NFP, NSP, ASP and CASP, Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) on manufacturing licenses and expatriate permits, and the Standards and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia (SIRIM) on SIRIM standard mark applications.
