Slovakia

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.  

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.
