In Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT), we work with some of the most creative and ambitious people around.
Our clients range from well-established national and multinational vendors, operators, publishers, broadcasters and customers to new entrants in niche sectors. With our deep experience and expertise in the field, we also represent governments and regulators, as well as advising investors and corporate finance intermediaries on equity and M&A transactions.
We can support you throughout the life cycle of your business, from start-up, initial fundings, regulatory and IP issues through to an exit or liquidity event, be that a trade sale, an MBO or an IPO. In addition, we advise large corporates on compliance and procurement contracts. We provide regular advice on business models, including licensing, content, hosted and cloud-based services, and compliance advice on data protection, infrastructure, information security and cyber legal issues. We also ensure that we seek to create robust agreements that support business value. Our team of dispute resolution specialists are on hand to provide creative solutions where disputes do arise.
It’s an advantage to have a law firm that knows your world, as well as the law.
