Stephenson Harwood has an impressive track record of helping businesses across all parts of the international telecoms, media and technology (TMT) industries. Our team's insights and know-how have been significantly enhanced by time spent working in the sector and on secondment to TMT client organisations.
  • Profile
  • Experience
  • Key contacts

We understand the real challenges faced by those working in the TMT sectors and we offer creative and practical solutions to help grow your business. While the deals in this dynamic sector are often headline grabbing and high profile, we work behind the scenes to ensure that your deals hit the news for the right reasons.

The impact of the digital age on both rights exploitation and rights protection means - with national boundaries no longer having the importance they once enjoyed - that content deals and rights infringement have to be considered in a global context. Monetising both new content and existing catalogue in fresh and creative ways is critical to rights owners maximising revenue streams. 

Our cross-disciplinary team draws on many years of practical and industry experience in the TMT sectors, with a deep understanding of the related legal and regulatory issues, in advising on commercial, regulatory and outsourcing transactions. We can help you with:

  • business regulation
  • commercial agreements
  • corporate transactions, including M&A, joint ventures, IPOs and private equity investments
  • dispute resolution
  • employment advice
  • finance
  • franchising and licensing
  • intellectual property issues
  • outsourcing solutions.

Whatever your challenges – whether funding, business expansion, regulation or protection - we can provide expert advice.
