The telecommunications and media industry is typically dynamic, complex and diverse. The changes taking place in this area are rapid and substantive, and they generate parallel changes in the structural aspects of the market (liberalization, globalization, convergence and complex regulation) and its technological aspects. The rapid developments and technological innovations naturally affect the licensing and supervision, policy and legislation regulating this diverse field.

These characteristics and processes require those operating or wishing to operate in this market to obtain legal advice from a professional team with profound experience, expertise and creativity, one that is highly familiar with the complex and rapidly changing legal and regulatory framework governing this field.
