TMT - Technology, Media & Telecommunications

Hungary

Fuelled by increased consumer demand for cutting edge products and low-cost services, you face a constant battle to offer ‘more for less’. Innovation drives growth, provided you overcome significant regulatory and commercial hurdles. Having worked on a broad range of cutting-edge technology, media and communications matters in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) over the past two decades, our market-leading specialists in the region have dealt with every risk and challenge you face in a rapidly evolving market, from IP infringement and anti-trust issues to the complex issues that arise as markets adapts to transformative technologies – big data, the cloud, e-health and the internet-of-things.

Many companies are also joining forces as they seek to meet highly capital-intensive demands for investment in technology and building networks. Our experts in CEE, many of whom have worked in-house in leading technology, media and communications companies, have led on a significant proportion of the limited number of network sharing arrangements that are in place across Europe.

CMS' lawyers are quick, accurate and have the expertise needed for quality legal work.
