Mayer Brown has a long history of providing clients in the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) sector with practical and pragmatic legal support. Our lawyers’ solid understanding of the business workings, economics and technologies of this sector is unparalleled. We have earned our spot at the forefront of the myriad legal, policy and business developments that affect, or have the potential to affect, TMT companies.
Our practice includes lawyers in our offices throughout the Americas, Asia and Europe, and combines legislative, regulatory, litigation and transactional experience and industry knowledge, which allows us to handle the countless issues that face our clients. We understand our clients’ products and services, pressure points, technologies and business goals, and we pride ourselves on our ability to offer seamless, comprehensive counseling and sophisticated, effective advocacy.
Our clients rely heavily upon our perspective, analysis and judgment. Our team members include former government officials with direct responsibility for TMT matters, each of whom adds to the breadth and depth of our combined knowledge. Thus, our team is able to draw on an immense pool of talent and resources that we can readily tailor to achieve each client’s goals.
We take a strategic approach to counseling and advocacy. In addition to advising our clients on compliance with existing laws and regulations, we help them anticipate, adapt to and benefit from changes in the legal and policy arenas. We craft innovative approaches when the law or rules are not clear, where there are seemingly irreconcilable multi-jurisdictional conflicts, where agency action or inaction is an issue, or in a combination of these circumstances.
We work strategically with our clients to assess challenges in the marketplace and regulatory arena that affect their businesses, and we identify and execute actions to achieve outcomes favorable to our clients.
