With our strategic positioning in more than 50 offices worldwide, our TMT practice is among the most interconnected in the world.

Our commercial lawyers advise on multi jurisdictional licensing projects, lease and network use agreements, interconnection agreements, infrastructure sharing, procurement and financing agreements, and on other commercial transactions.

Our team combines its knowledge across a range of practice areas into a single integrated approach, enabling us to leverage knowledge in one area to produce solutions in another.
