Pinsent Masons has chosen James Arnott and Veronica Scott as partners to launch the firm’s technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) practice in Melbourne.

Matthew Croagh, head of Australia at Pinsent Masons, said: “Every organisation is grappling with the ferocious pace of change in the field of technology, data and privacy, including the opportunities this change presents as well as the significant risk to operations and reputation. Arnott and Scott are highly regarded lawyers in this field with a wealth of experience advising on business-transformation matters and highly sensitive risk issues.”

Arnott is a former head of the technology and digital transformation team at KPMG Law, while Scott led the Australian cyber, privacy and data practice at the same firm.

Scott said: “As we move to a global digital economy, we are entering a critical phase. Organisations need to apply technological and data-driven responses to key challenges – from decarbonising supply chains to implementing AI – while facing an increasingly complex global regulatory environment and heightened cyber risk. We are looking forward to continuing to help organisations and their boards take advantage of the possibilities that exist today.”

Arnott added: “It’s great to be able to combine our expertise with Pinsent Masons’ global TMT capability and industry sector teams to make a positive impact for organisations across the region.”

Two senior associates and four associates will join the team in Melbourne.
