Seminar with Anne Petterd and Daniel Jacobs

Information owners have legitimate concerns about the ability of both domestic and international governments to access their information. In this session Anne and Daniel will discuss the framework around government access to data by covering both legal and practical considerations and touching on recent examples.

Anne Petterd (Baker & McKenzie) advises clients on technology, telecommunications, customs and export controls, consumer and commercial law issues. Anne's practice predominantly involves acting for parties in major defence and government projects and advising on procurement requirements. Anne also focuses on cloud services and the telecommunications industry, advising on a range of telecommunications regulatory and transactional matters. These include matters relating to the NBN legislative scheme and rollout, service provider regulation, and agreements for supplying telecommunications services and for operating a telecommunications business. Anne regularly advises suppliers and manufacturers of technology, telecommunications and other supplies on Australian Consumer Law requirements. She also advises importers and exporters on customs compliance and export control requirements.

Daniel Jacobs (Baker & McKenzie) advises primarily in the technology sector on a range of areas including privacy, telecommunications, consumer law, general commercial law and broadcasting. In relation to privacy, Daniel advises on overseas disclosures, privacy policies and procedures, data sovereignty and dealing with government customers and information.
