Technology, Media and Telecommunications

We are involved in some of the highest-stake telecoms, media and technology cases at a national and international level.

Our experienced TMT practice group is organised through our three Benelux offices, with specialist lawyers providing coordinated and integrated legal advice on cross-border files. Our work includes IT and electronic communication, regulatory and commercial contracting, negotiations and assistance in disputes.

Our multi-disciplinary approach ensures we act on many matters such as ICT disentanglements, regulatory issues, competition and procurement law, privacy and data protection and transactional work. For disputes, we not only work with the ordinary courts, but also with the administrative tribunals and alternative dispute resolution channels.

The team also assists major players in the spectrum of domestic and international media issues – handling a breadth of transactions from broadcasting rights to tax shelters. Due to their experience, media pressure is never a concern.

Furthermore, we advise on complex technology cases in various sectors such as  data protection, e-commerce, software compliance issues, and ICT sourcing and contracting.
