Legal issues facing the technology, media and telecoms sector

Technology, media and telecoms ("TMT") companies face a number of challenges within this rapidly changing sector. Consumers continue to drive harder bargains both in terms of cost and value, as well as seeking guarantees for future improvements for licensing models and products and services.

We advise over 500 clients in this field, delivering tailored legal advice.

As such, TMT companies are increasingly focused on how they can maximise their own business in order to win customers by meeting/exceeding their needs, whilst continuing to flourish as a profitable business.

Tailored legal advice for TMT clients

Some of the key areas our TMT clients have needed assistance include:

  • pan international advice on global deals
  • M&A
    • buying in of intellectual property rich add-ons and strategic acquisitions
    • sale of non core assets and businesses
  • laws and contractual framework around emerging technology and business models such as
    • cloud
    • open source software
    • virtualisation, whether buying in or selling out
  • regulatory advice
    • data privacy
    • competition/anti-trust
    • environmental and regulatory regimes
  • outsourcing (as a supplier or customer)
  • joint ventures
  • HR change management projects, rationalisation and pension scheme variations
  • disputes and dispute resolution.
