Telecoms

We advise on a broad range of transactions and regulatory work in the telecoms sector, including corporate transactions, technology & business sourcing, competition, distribution, IP, strategic regulatory counselling, mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings and financings, dispute resolution and tax planning. Our specialized teams cooperate seamlessly across practices to integrate legal service.

Our practitioners understand the particular requirements of the telecoms sector and are familiar with a broad range of technologies including internet, wireless and satellite communications, cable and digital platforms, and the constant need for product development and complex supply chain management.

We have a proven track record in telecoms regulatory and transactional work, including telecom network outsourcing, network communication and security services, international roaming and MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) agreements, network sharing and business alliances, joint ventures, spectrum auctions, and strategic regulatory advice. We frequently represent clients before Swiss regulatory authorities.
