Media & Telecommunications

The Media & Telecommunications Practice attorneys advise various licensees, investors and customers in the areas of telecommunications services and equipment, GSM and CDMA, and other mobile telecommunications services, as well as prominent media services in the areas of television and radio broadcasting, cable television systems and print media. Due to the complexity and breath of communications transactions, telecommunications practice attorneys often work in unison with H&R corporate, antitrust, international and tax attorneys.

This Practice’s attorneys offer unique expertise in traversing the intricacies of regional regulatory schemes to obtain the requisite licenses and other governmental authorizations in order to facilitate the client's smooth involvement, or transition, into the communications business. In addition to the general representation of communications clients before the relevant authorities, H&R attorneys work on a wide range of international, regional, national and municipal issues. Such attorneys further analyze regulatory policy-making issues, develop appropriate strategic positions for clients and present them in licensing proceedings before various government agencies. Aside from providing the regulatory assistance crucial to a successful transaction, these attorneys substantively participate in structuring the acquisitions of regulated companies, privatizations of telecommunications companies and the formation of joint ventures to provide communications services.

For example, H&R attorneys advised one of Europe’s telecom operators in the acquisition and privatization of RomTelecom - the largest foreign investment made in Romania since the fall of Communism in 1989. Not only did H&R attorneys structure the transaction and perform the complete due diligence examination of the company, but they successfully stewarded this complex transaction through the Competition Council in the first-of-its kind procedure which has set the precedent for all future applications before the Council. Furthermore, H&R counseled clients in the acquisition and licensing of various radio and television stations, cable television companies and several Western telecoms in a broad variety of matters dealing with applicable regulations and laws.
