Biography

Dalvin Chien is a senior commercial and technology lawyer based in our Sydney office with significant experience in technology transactions, privacy, and electronic commerce.
 
Dalvin has acted for both vendors and procurers of technology which gives him valuable insight into commercial and risk drivers.  This in turn allows him to adopt a pragmatic and values based approach to the advice he provides, the documents he reviews, and the negotiations he leads.  Dalvin also has extensive industry experience including when he was senior legal counsel in a leading technology company and his time as senior legal counsel in various public sector organisations.  As a result, he has developed a deep appreciation of the practical application of the services he provides and the issues facing senior executives, sales leads, procurement managers, and compliance executives. 
 
Dalvin regularly speaks at client and industry events on technology, privacy, and commercial law topics. 
 
Dalvin is recognised as a 'Next Generation Lawyer' in the IT and Telecommunications category in Australia by Legal 500 Asia Pacific.
