The Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) sectors are experiencing significant change at the moment; creating great opportunities and posing equally great challenges. 

Few other industry sectors are as fluid, and few have the capacity to change businesses – or indeed society – as quickly or profoundly. The last few years have seen waves of disruptive technologies emerging, and that will continue. At the same time we expect the relentless digitisation of traditional industry sectors and business types to continue to give rise to fundamental changes in old markets, and re-write the rules on how businesses think and operate, and how they are put together. 

We are helping our clients on this odyssey. We are helping them to frame their opportunities, and we are helping them to navigate through the challenges. We are there with our clients when they are engaging in their most complex, market-defining, 'first of a kind' deals, and when they are managing their most difficult, unexpected, ‘first of a kind' challenges.

Our clients are engaging with all of these developments; looking for the opportunities, and dealing with the risks. They are asking themselves questions such as:

  • What are the right models to adopt?
  • What doesn’t work anymore?
  • Is our market changing under us, and if so how do we deal with that?
  • Where will the next wave of competitors come from?
  • How do you deal with the piecemeal regulation that is springing up to belatedly deal with all of the changes that are happening?
  • How do we change from within whilst keeping our core business running smoothly?

With unrivaled expertise and extensive resources across the globe in these sectors, we are able to provide practical, informed, sensible solutions. Our sector expertise is backed by strong practice expertise, including our award winning transactional, regulatory and disputes teams.

These sectors are giving rise to great opportunities and great challenges: we are there with you.
