Overview

We are market leaders in Argentina.  Since the privatization and deregulation of the sector, we have advised international investors, foreign and national operators and regulators on the various aspects of telecommunications services. With regard to audio-visual media, we have advised corporate audio-visual media service providers, content producers and entertainment companies.                    

The specialist regulatory advice is complemented by input from the firm’s other practice areas. This combination ensures comprehensive solutions to satisfy the particular needs of the telecommunications industry in the areas of administrative, commercial, corporate, competition/antitrust, financial and tax law, and dispute resolution.

Our firm handles general regulatory advice, representation before the regulatory authorities, legal disputes and class actions, as well as the negotiation and drafting of peering agreements among operators.

We provide comprehensive advice to foreign investors generally and specifically on media acquisitions in Argentina, including corporate matters, employment, trade unions, contracts, regulations, relations with regulatory bodies, including restructuring, debt issues and company reorganizations. We have decades of experience advising audio-visual content production companies with focus on sporting events.
