IT, Media & Telecommunications
Media is evolving, with new players and technologies changing the way that content is created and distributed, and information being shared at accelerated rates. Media companies come to us for our proven experience in classic broadcast and media, as well as our strong telecoms and technology capabilities. We understand the legal issues in connection with digital media and the convergence between traditional distribution and Internet-based services.
Our clients come to us on issues regarding content distribution, be it via cable, satellite or terrestrial broadcasting, including specific problems with technical platforms.
We provide advice to companies pursuing domestic or cross-border acquisition or sale transactions, spin-offs and other extraordinary transactions.
In the highly regulated arena of cable television and other audiovisual services, and Internet and telephone services, many disputes raise complex regulatory and antitrust issues. In those cases, we seamlessly integrate our deep antitrust and other regulatory experience into our litigation strategy.
Our combined regulatory and technological experience positions us well to advise clients on matters relating to Mobile TV and IPTV. In regulatory matters, we provide enterprises and local authorities with full legal advice including licensing, data protection and consumer protection law.
