TMC - Technology, Media & Telecommunications

Romania

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 of our experts in CEE have worked in-house in leading technology, media and communications companies.

Many companies are also joining forces as they seek to meet highly capital-intensive demands for investment in technology and building networks. Having assisted Orange Romania on a number of network sharing agreements in Romania, including radio access network, 4G national roaming and fixed broadband network infrastructure sharing arrangements – all of them first of their kind in Romania and examples of a limited number of similar arrangements across Europe – the top-ranked technology, media and communications team in Romania has practical first-hand experience of network sharing projects and is familiar with the regulatory and transactional complexities involved.

We understand that 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, our multi-disciplinary teams can help guide you towards the most commercially successful outcome.

We are actively involved in the industries in which you operate including telecommunications, technology, sourcing, sports and media, and are able to develop innovative solutions for you. Recognising the ever growing demand for and importance of data privacy, CMS has a dedicated data privacy team focusing on the full range of data privacy compliance matters, from privacy audits through to data security, transmission and management, as well as issues such as safe harbour and Big Data at both local and EU level.
