TMT

Our TMT team is a practice group integrated by corporate and IP/IT lawyers with knowledge in the telecommunications, media and technology regulatory fields as well and on the industry practice. This knowledge derives from our work in those sectors since, al least, 1989.

 

The TMT department has extensive experience in providing counsel to telecoms, media and IT operators, but also to other players in the sector such as content or infrastructure providers or corporations contracting with those operators. It has acted in some of the most significant transactions of the past years: consolidation process across the sector through M&A, establishment of new operators and business in the Spanish market, tenders for the obtaining of licenses or resources, main cases before the Regulators, outsourcing and relevant e-commerce contracts.

 

Our TMT area is made up of a multidisciplinary team of specialized lawyers; this ensures that any area of law which may impact on a matter can be specifically addressed with the required expertise. Our teams normally include specialists in the industry sectors as well as corporate M&A, finance, tax, antitrust and IP/IT. This allows us to provide strategies and answers to the complexities faced by these projects.
