Firm Description

We specialise in advising clients in the telecommunications and business technology sectors in the UK and worldwide, adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, which allows us to focus on all aspects of our clients' business from initial formation, through re-financing and debt re-structuring, drafting and negotiating customer and supplier facing agreements, advising on the regulatory implications of doing business in a wide variety of jurisdictions, and supporting dispute resolution requirements when they arise.

In the international business environment, we work with clients doing business in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Americas but have developed particular commercial and regulatory expertise in the Middle East and Africa regions.
