Tech Legal Outlook 2022

In 2022 technology will be critical to organisations as they adapt to a changing world and invest in a digital and more sustainable future.

From AI to climate tech, fintech to space tech, tech will continue to be instrumental in powering recovery from Covid-19, enabling opportunities and offering solutions to some of the world’s greatest challenges.

As the digital economy develops and we contemplate the metaverse, it will continue to present legal and ethical issues – issues which governments see a more urgent need to address. New legislation and regulatory action made a significant impact in 2021 and with initiatives underway across the globe, businesses face a climate of heightened risk and regulation in 2022.

In this publication we explore the key global trends in the technology sector that we believe will shape the legal outlook for businesses in 2022 and beyond. We consider two macro-themes:

1. Investing in our digital future

  • Climate Tech – making energy transition a reality
  • Investing in Space – ready for take-off?
  • AI and IP – protecting your investment

2. Regulatory reset for the digital economy

  • Antitrust and foreign investment regulation and enforcement
  • Data regulation, enforcement and litigation
  • The impact of regulatory headwinds on tech investment
