Europe Bulgaria TMT

TMT stands for Technology, Media and Telecommunications. This broad section incorporates work relating to these three areas of law. Technology includes outsourcing between corporates and suppliers of IT services, IT procurement and regulatory matters in the sector. The section also considers M&A activity in the sector but places priority on those firms and individuals that demonstrate a specialised knowledge in the requirements of the sector. Media includes contentious and non-contentious advertising and marketing matters as well as activity relating to the Film & TV, music, publishing and theatre industries. This includes production, financing and distribution aspects. Telecommunications includes transactional and litigation advice to telecoms companies and wireless operators, and the regulatory issues that such companies face. Other matters include interconnection and resales laws, multimedia agreements and licensing activity. Unless there is a more specific chapter, Data Protection is also included in the TMT chapter. This covers regulatory advice on data protection and privacy compliance, cases of data security breaches, representation of clients in investigations, enforcement actions or litigation relating to data protection and privacy. Work of an international nature can include advising clients with multinational operations on data security issues relating to cross-border transfers of data, such as in large-scale outsourcing transactions involving a number of countries, and on global or multi-jurisdictional privacy compliance programmes.
