Vale Claro ‘Lalen’ Parlade - June 2015

It is with great sadness that we report the loss of Galexia Associate and close friend Claro Parlade, who has died in the Philippines after a period of illness.

Claro was a well known IT lawyer in the Philippines who played a key role in the development of cyberlaws in the Asia Pacific region. Claro collaborated with Galexia on several regional projects, and was based in the Galexia offices in Sydney for a short period while he worked on the development of the Philippines privacy legislation, (the Data Privacy Act 2012).

Claro also held senior roles at Google and BSA | The Software Alliance. He was a global expert, having lived, worked and studied in the Philippines, Australia, Canada, the US and Singapore.

The Galexia team express our deepest sympathy to Claro's wife, three daughters and family. Claro’s gentle combination of wit, insight, friendship, intellect and cyber-law expertise will be missed by all of us.
