An international team able to provide advice across the whole range of telecoms, media and technology issues.

The International Telecoms group comprises a number of partners and associates from our London and Middle East offices. Internationally, the firm has the largest dedicated and specialised corporate and regulatory telecoms team present in the Middle East region. Many of our lawyers have spent significant periods of time in-house with incumbent operators, new entrant operators and regulatory authorities in the Middle East, Europe and South East Asia.

In the past two years we have worked for a large number of international telecommunications operators from the MENA region, Europe and Asia on some of the most significant telecoms transactions in jurisdictions throughout the Middle East and as far afield as Singapore, Indonesia, Cambodia and the Maldives.

The type of matters we have advised on include 'big-ticket' telecoms finance, M&A and private equity transactions. We have also acted for clients in setting up specialised telecoms private equity funds and assisted them with the evaluation of downstream investments. In addition to this, we have advised a number of operators on individual and class licence bids and applications, the whole spectrum of regulatory issues, and dispute resolution. We have also acted as retained legal counsel to both incumbent and new entrant operators in newly liberalised markets (most notably in Bahrain, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates) and have also advised regulatory authorities.
