MinterEllison has boosted its technology consulting prowess with the appointment of a new partner.

Ashish Das has moved to the firm, adding what MinterEllison said is “proven experience in delivering digitally enabled business transformation programs.” Das, who joined the firm from PwC, also advises on regulatory compliance and cybersecurity risk.

The appointment follows that of partner Ros O’Mally, who joined the firm’s capital markets and corporate team from Hogan Lovells.

 “Ashish has a great understanding of prominent technology trends and their relevance to business strategy and growth,” said Stephen Craike, partner and head of technology consulting. “He brings with him over 17 years' experience in strategic roles for technology consulting firms, as well as knowledge and leadership from various senior positions within the Big Four consulting firms.”

Das has become partner at ITNewcom, part of MinterEllison Consulting, which was launched in 2017 as the firm further embraced a multi-disciplinary future structure.

"Since acquiring ITNewcom in 2017, we have continued to invest significantly in our technology consulting services. The market has responded positively to this move as the demand for combined ICT legal and consulting solutions grows from clients who comprise some of the largest enterprises and government departments in the Asia Pacific," said partner Andrew Cunningham.

Cunningham, who is managing partner for consulting services and innovation at the firm, said that Das will work with clients to drive both efficiency and technology enablement across organisations.

Das is the sixth partner in the firm’s national consultancy team.

“There's enormous potential to offer clients a unique and valuable proposition by providing innovative, integrated capabilities to help navigate increasingly complex technology, regulatory and legal challenges,” Das said.
