Telecom, Media and Technology (TMT)

We are one of the few recognised “solutions providers” in the fields of Telecom, Media and Technology (TMT), including Information Technology (IT), in Switzerland. We do not only provide legal solutions for our clients but we are also regarded by our clients as a key point of contact for business and complex project-related matters during various project implementation phases.

The expertise of our specialists includes:

  • infrastructure projects, including in the fields of telecommunication, energy and traffic
  • IT projects, for example the procurement and/or distribution of IT systems, IoT, smart contracting
  • commercialisation of intellectual property, in particular in connection with sports events, software and data
  • supporting, advising and representing clients in TMT/IT matters in all kinds of transactions, including procurement, development, outsourcing acquisitions, mergers, disinvestments and other restructuring measures
  • advising and representing clients before competition authorities in respect of merger control clearance as well as other regulatory bodies
  • representing clients in mediation, arbitration and litigation in case of project failure.

Our lawyers pursue a holistic approach to advising and representing clients. As such, we work in an advisory, transaction-accompanying and forensic capacity, and we represent our clients before courts, arbitral tribunals and other authorities. Clients appreciate our “hands-on” approach, which is bolstered by our active involvement in many recent innovative TMT and IT projects.
