TMC - Technology, Media & Communications

Spain

Technological convergence coupled with the rapid spread of new technologies has opened up a wealth of opportunities in the sector which the corresponding legal advice can only replicate. Where there used to be three separate practices, it is now necessary to provide multidisciplinary advice on regulation concerning electronic communication, the media, security, the use and sharing of information, new technologies and data protection.

Our Spanish team comprises experts in different fields (services and telecommunication network regulation, the media, technology, software, IP, data security, etc.) with a successful track record in providing clients with interdisciplinary solutions.

Moreover, our clients’ requirements in this sector are becoming more globalised. Our team has over 300 specialist lawyers in 43 countries advising on the launch of international projects, centralising their management and providing clients with a single point of contact.

The clients in this sector are highly diverse, ranging from large global telecommunications operators, world leaders in e-commerce, high-tech firms and content owners to traditional businesses seeking specialist legal coverage.
