Telecommunications

A swiftly developing industry, telecommunications has become a large sector for many commercial law firms on an international level. We advise the telecoms industry in relation to all legal aspects to include corporate M&A, banking, commercial property including investment in and the creation of infrastructure portfolios, regulatory, dispute resolution, IP and employment.  Our growth in this sector ranges from acting on matters such as large network infrastructure projects to communications matters and all the technologies in between.

Our clients value having us as advisers as we understand the industry in which they operate. We have over 20 years’ experience working within telecoms and have acted on many of the industries’ biggest projects, including:

  • Europe’s fastest network rollout for Hutchison 3G UK Limited and the consolidation of that network with T’mobile’s (now EE).
  • Local community fixed wireless broadband and mobile phone mast at Pontrhydfendigaid West Wales securing access for a local community who had no mobile or broadband coverage.
  • Acting for clients providing indoor coverage for buildings where there is no mobile phone signal using wireless technology.

Our expertise in this sector has largely focused on matters involving cell site acquisition, installation, upgrading , decommissioning and sharing of infrastructure relating to electronic communications, such as telephone networks, mobile operators, wireless broadband and cable operators. Our experience extends to many different issues faced by the telecoms industry, including:
