Rapid transformation and innovation are the drivers of the telecommunications sector. In the US, the Telecommunications Act of 1996 deregulated the industry and triggered an explosion of communication technologies available to consumers, creating countless new markets in which industry players compete for customers. Outside the US, due to shifting political and economic attitudes, waves of mergers and privatizations have swept Europe and Latin America, allowing telecom companies to become privately-owned enterprises that compete with each other both locally and globally. Providers and purchasers of voice, data and related services worldwide all rely on Weil to apply the knowledge gleaned from intricate client situations we have handled to the novel situations they face as this international industry changes and grows.
As telecom companies around the world compete on both global and domestic turf, instances of industry consolidation are on the rise. Through our combined international regulatory and corporate expertise, Weil offers one-stop shopping for any major telecommunications transaction, providing counsel on a variety of matters. These include complex acquisitions, strategic sales and alliances, private equity and capital markets matters and financings, as well as antitrust/regulatory and intellectual property matters.
The complexity of telecommunications law, as in any technology-driven industry, demands access to specific knowledge during negotiation or litigation. Weil attorneys make it their business to remain abreast of developments involving telecommunications case law, legislation and regulations.
When necessary, we can provide the best restructuring advice available. Working as a team of cross-disciplinary attorneys, all with telecommunications industry focus and experience, we successfully represented the world’s leading global communications company in its restructuring and financial crisis management.
Weil has been involved in numerous telecommunications privatizations, financings and other major transactions. Privatization has become the most common method of reform in the telecommunications industry, liberating state-owned companies from the requirement that they operate as over-regulated monopolies.
