Our Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) group combines expertise in the business dynamics of the sector and the legal and regulatory environment with an understanding of digital networks, platforms and the disruptive technologies – AI, blockchain, cloud and big data – that are driving innovation.
The TMT sector is both fast-moving and fast-changing. Sector players and their technologies and platforms play an increasingly important role, both in the wider economy and in the performance of players in other sectors: these days, all businesses are information and technology businesses to some extent.
We work with a wide range of clients, including content providers and search engines, sharing-economy leaders, manufacturers, networks and infrastructure providers, to develop practical legal solutions to a wide range of business challenges. Our TMT sector specialists draw on the expertise of colleagues around the firm, including Litigation & Dispute Resolution, Banking & Finance, Tax, M&A and Corporate, to anticipate potential issues and solve problems before others see them. From privacy and IP disputes and licensing and regulatory issues to strategic transactions, joint ventures and financing arrangements, we help clients to protect their assets and achieve their strategic objectives.
In addition, our data protection officer service is among the best in the country, serving hospitals, utilities companies and consumer goods manufacturers.
The strength and depth of our private equity expertise is reflected in our consistent top-tier M&A rankings in the key legal directories.
