Practice Area

What intrigues me is the potential impact of artificial intelligence and data on human lives. AI has already entered our lives through mobile phones, smartwatches and TVs and can track our behavioural patterns, health, potential actions and reactions, in ways that are unimaginable. I am curious to see and hope to contribute to the policy framework, including with respect to antitrust law, that will shape this area.

The team at AZB & Partners is mix of competent people who have good commercial understanding on competition law.
