Our global communications, media and entertainment lawyers advise a number of prominent industry clients across the full spectrum of communications and media law throughout Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Middle East.
We were one of the first legal practices to establish a communications, media and entertainment industry group to sit alongside our global practice areas. This has helped us retain and enhance our reputation for understanding not just the law, but also our clients’ businesses, the value drivers in their industry and the pressures which influence their decisions.
Our clients include leading communications providers, broadcasting giants, independent radio, film and television companies, agents, event organizers, record labels, music distributors, publishers, artists, financiers, newspaper empires and telecommunications companies including mobile network operators, infrastructure owners and investors, technology suppliers and equipment manufacturers and financial institutions.
We offer a solutions-oriented approach to a range of transactions, including complex cross-border M&A and joint ventures, content acquisitions, network sharing and outsourcing, as well as advice on global regulation, disputes, license bids, privatizations and financing (including the sale and leaseback of towers) and investment.
