Izwan talks to Tech This Way on Malaysia’s tech startup scene

Izwan was recently interviewed by Amran Hassan on Tech This Way. The popular podcast typically involves interviews with technology leaders and entrepreneurs to present insights on trends in the Malaysian tech startup scene. Izwan is the first technology and startup lawyer to appear on the podcast.

Topics covered in Amran and Izwan’s discussion included:

  • Izwan’s background and journey to Izwan & Partners
  • what founders should consider before starting a startup
  • common mistakes often made during negotiations
  • what are the key issues that startups should look out when hiring their first lawyer
  • trends in the local legal scene on technology adoption by law firms
  • Izwan & Partners’ content marketing strategy
  • plans for the firm in Malaysia and the region in 2020

A short caveat here. The podcast was recorded sometime before the government’s first movement restriction order. We now know that a lot of things have changed since then. For instance, we’re seeing many law firms using technologies in their marketing strategies like using webinars to promote their services. Also, the courts have not just begun hearing disputes using online teleconferencing, but have also streamed the proceedings online. As an innovative technology law firm, we are super excited to see what’s more to come!
