Innovation is key, but you need to overcome significant regulatory and commercial hurdles. For the past two decades, our team of over 100 specialist partners in 42 countries has been exposed to virtually every risk and challenge you face in the TMC sector such as regulatory issues, licensing matters, IP infringements, data protection and anti-trust issues, as well as small, medium and large-scale M&A matters, JVs, MVNOs and similar. This means we understand the industries in which you transact including telecommunications, technology, sourcing, sports and media and are able to develop innovative solutions for you.

Sector convergence coupled with the rapid spread of new technologies has opened up a wealth of opportunities in your industry and you must move swiftly to capitalise on them.
