Partner Lijun Chui and Associate Joseph Lim contributed an article titled "Developments in Data Privacy Litigation globally and in Singapore: Addressing the growing need for individuals to protect their personal data" in the Personal Data Protection Digest 2022. The PDP Digest is published by the Personal Data Protection Commission ("PDPC") of Singapore.
