Electronic communications (telecoms and broadcasting) is one of the most complex regulated sectors, with decisions by regulators and competition authorities affecting business success at every stage of the digital value chain.
Our experience in the sector is second-to-none; our lawyers have been involved from the earliest days of liberalisation (in the UK and in dozens of markets throughout the world), through the latest-breaking issues pertaining to the digital economy. We have helped our clients talk to politicians, governments and with national, EU and regional regulators.
The regulatory landscape in electronic communications is diverse, extending across economic, consumer and technical regulation and often overlapping all three (for example, in spectrum policy). Our clients’ concerns range from investing in infrastructure and site access, through wholesale, intermediate and retail mass markets for broadband, fixed and mobile voice, and TV, through to over-the-top services and digital platforms. We are experienced in every area.
