TMC - Technology, Media & Communications

Technological convergence coupled with the rapid spread of new technologies has opened up a wealth of opportunities in your industry and you must move swiftly to capitalise on them. To stay ahead of the competition, you need to spot and pre-empt legal difficulties before they arise. Innovation is key, but you need to overcome significant regulatory and commercial hurdles.

We are day-to-day advisers for various areas within the industry, including the IT industry leader in Latin America. We have experience in negotiating hardware and software contracts, both foreign and national, as well as in the negotiation and legal structuring of the integration of complex IT service solutions.

The telecom market is currently in full transformation in Chile. The modernisation of the normative framework will continue until it has lowered the barriers to entry for new players, simplifying models for granting licences and modifying them for converged services. We have actively participated in the elaboration and discussion of laws and regulations that govern this industry in Chile.

We can advise you on matters related to M&A, as well as on financing alternatives by way of public offer of shares and bonds in the capital markets.
