Telecommunications, Media and Technology (TMT)

Broadcasters, telecom operators, online and hardcopy publishers all instinctively turn to ARCLIFFE LLP when it comes to legal support. We have a highly experienced communications practice, and over the last few years have done many of the major transactions on the market.

We work for operators, new entrants, media trusts, internet and e-commerce services, cable operators and industry players on legal and regulatory issues. We advise clients on the establishment of joint ventures, competition, intellectual property, finance and acquisition of telecommunication and media assets, as well as a wide range of commercial agreements. We also advise investors and financial institutions supporting these operations.

A selection of our collective knowledge, includes advising:

  • Telesystem International Wireless Inc. in connection with sale of MobiFon, a leading provider of mobile telecommunication services in CEE, to Vodafone Group plc.
  • Lucent Technologies, a US based telecommunication company, with financing of and export of technology to Telemobil the leading CEE telecommunication company.
  • FN Cable Holdings (a telecoms company ultimately owned by Warburg Pincus) in connection with the EUR 46 million sale of its Hungarian subsidiaries (trading under the FiberNet brand) of Magyar Telecom B.V. (an Invitel affiliate ultimately controlled by Mid-Europe Partners) (second largest M&A TMT deal in Hungary in 2010).
