Technology is critical to organisations as they adapt to a changing world and invest in a digital and more sustainable future. From well-established multi-nationals to high growth tech companies, we help clients realise the opportunities and navigate the challenges presented by the digital economy.

We offer clients our unparalleled cross-border depth of legal and regulatory knowledge and experience across a broad spectrum of cross-sector technology trends, such as fintech, digital health, e-commerce and mobility. This ensures that all of our clients receive commercially innovative and technically strong advice.

Digital infrastructure

As our lives are becoming increasingly connected and digitised, the role of telecoms companies in enabling this change is pivotal. While this change presents these companies with significant opportunities, it also presents them with challenges and competition in the supply of digital services is fierce. Our lawyers operate at the forefront of this challenging environment applying their unparalleled expertise in the communications and digital infrastructure space, all underpinned by a deep understanding of technology. We are experienced in providing integrated advice globally across all disciplines to communications, satellite and internet companies and their infrastructure and finance providers and investors, as well as to governments and regulators.

Recently, the increasing interest in digital infrastructure as an asset class has led to an explosion of transactions. Telecoms companies are looking to monetise capital intensive and non-differentiating assets such as towers and fibre, while new entrants are leveraging digitisation and the exponential growth in demand for high-speed data services by investing in data centres and connectivity solutions such as 5G equipment, subsea cable and satellite transmission.

We help our clients maximise their opportunities in this fast-evolving environment by offering telecoms lawyers that not only have a deep understanding of telecoms, but also understand technology, data and commercial arrangements. This depth and breadth of expertise means that we can provide a seamless, holistic advice geared to client foreseeable needs as well as their current projects. Our team is experienced in advising on all areas relevant to participants in the telecoms sector, including on M&A, large scale commercial transactions such as sale and leaseback and outsourcing, telecoms regulation, finance and litigation.
