Telecommunications Transactions


McDermott provides comprehensive legal counsel to companies with interests in a broad range of TMT-related sectors, including mobile and fixed-line telephony, cable and satellite television, entertainment, film production and financing, software, hardware, outsourcing and telematics. In this complex arena, there is no substitute for firsthand experience: our lawyers have worked for years with TMT companies, in private practice and as in-house counsel.

We advise on mergers, acquisitions and other major transactions, negotiate and draft licensing, end-user and e-commerce agreements, consult on IT outsourcing projects, and provide guidance on regulatory compliance and government lobbying. We have significant international experience, having represented numerous companies in the process of entering and diversifying into North America, Asia, Europe and other international communications, media and technology markets.
