TMC - Technology, Media & Communications

China

Fuelled by increased consumer demand for cutting edge products and low-cost services, your business is faced with the constant battle to offer ‘more for less’. Innovation is key, but you need to overcome significant regulatory and commercial hurdles. Our specialised experts have been exposed to every risk and challenge you face in the TMC sector. This means we understand the industries in which you transact including telecommunications, technology, media, network and IT infrastructure, internet and e-commerce as well as data protection and are able to develop innovative solutions for you. We also advise traditional businesses when they encounter TMC issues, such as automotive and industrial vehicle manufactures, banks, supermarkets, lifesciences companies and public sector organisations.

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. From M&A to investment and financing, from tax to licensing and product liability, from intellectual property to employment and environmental issues, from network sharing to outsourcing, from establishment of R&D centres and testing facilities to technology import and export, our team in China can help guide you towards the most commercially successful outcome.
