A Unique Commercial Perspective
Malcolm has an extensive business career prior to being called to the law. From launching and exiting his own technology startups to holding “C Level” positions managing e-commence and technology commercialisation (digital transformation) for large organisations and multinationals, he understands the need for pragmatic advise. During the internet boom of the late 1990’s he also lectured part time to MBA Students in the subject of “e-commerce strategy” at the QUT’s Graduate School of Business – when people actually attended lectures in person!
Because he is one of very few lawyers that has actual business experience commercialising technology, prior to being called to the law, clients in this space tend to gravitate towards his expertise as a technology lawyer. Dundas Lawyers advises organisations on legal issues related to technology commercialisation, data protection, privacy compliance, cybersecurity, e-commerce, cloud computing, and emerging technologies such as block-chain and artificial intelligence. In an era of rapid technological change, Malcolm ensures that his clients are aware of the legal implications surrounding their digital transformation endeavours and helps them navigate this everchanging regulatory environment.
In addition to his advisory role, Malcolm is a skilled negotiator and advocate when it comes to civil litigation and dispute resolution. He assists clients to resolve legal conflicts through negotiation, mediation, and if necessary, the Australian Courts system. Whether it’s a corporations dispute, intellectual property infringement matter or any other business dispute Malcolm diligently works to protect his clients’ rights and achieve favourable outcomes.
Malcolm’s diverse and unique actual business experience, double undergraduate and post graduate business and legal qualifications along with well over a decade of experience as a lawyer with top and mid-tier firms and enable him to excel as a trusted advisor to his commercial business clients.
