Our TCPA Law Watch blog covers the business, legal, and policy developments affecting the telecom, media, and technology sector.

The regulatory, technical, and commercial convergence in the telecom, media, and technology (TMT) sectors demands the experience of lawyers who understand the unique legal and business challenges of those sectors.

Our TMT practice delivers services globally through the firm’s United States and international offices, including Beijing, Berlin, Hong Kong, London, Paris, and Taipei, and ongoing relationships with law firms specializing in TMT matters throughout the world.

Our lawyers understand the legal and business issues faced by our clients in the TMT industries. As former chief legal officers of public and private companies in the TMT sectors, former lawyers for the FCC and the U.S. Department of Justice, Antitrust Division, and the former general counsel of a state public service commission, our lawyers have served on the front lines of TMT convergence and innovation.

Our TMT lawyers have been recognized as leading practitioners in their fields for their roles in drafting the legislation and rules implementing the FCC’s spectrum auctions and Telecommunications Act of 1996, dealing with EU authorities and the German legislature in regard to copyright policy and law, creating from scratch many of the models for cutting-edge multi-platform content distribution transactions at the heart of TMT convergence, prosecuting sophisticated TMT related patents, litigating complex TMT cases, and paving the way for the build-out and operation communication networks. By combining in-depth TMT industry experience with a full range of interdisciplinary support, we are able to offer a strategically focused, innovative, and value-driven service to meet the needs of our clients.

Whether the subject area is distinctly regulatory, litigation, intellectual property, or transactional, or, increasingly, an inter-disciplinary hybrid of several practice areas, our knowledge and experience in the TMT sectors deliver strategic value and efficiencies to our clients.
