We advise on a range of issues from telecoms regulation and enforcement to network sharing, infrastructure investments and tower asset acquisitions.
We also advise on related digital infrastructure such as sub-sea and terrestrial cables and data centres, supporting our clients on everything from construction and development through to colocation, connection, service and power purchase agreements.
Our lawyers have in-depth knowledge and experience of the particular requirements of the telecommunications and digital infrastructure sectors and understand the environment in which our clients operate. At the forefront of regulatory and legal developments, our lawyers provide practical, industry-focused, first-class legal advice and use their multidisciplinary expertise in this sector to guide our clients.
