Telecommunications, Media and Technology

The telecommunications, media and technology (TMT) industries are evolving rapidly, and their impact on daily lives continues to grow. Maintaining a competitive advantage in these fast-changing marketplaces is a major challenge for companies. At the same time, regulators and policymakers have to decide on the balance between competition and intervention in a market where technology, services and customer behaviour changes significantly from year to year.

Confronted with the twin challenges of quickly evolving technology and a regulatory environment trying to keep pace, organisations and the legal community require independent and objective expert advice across a broad range of areas. These areas include competition policy and litigation, regulation, strategy, costing and pricing, intellectual property (IP) management, sector policy and spectrum. BRG professionals have earned an international reputation in these areas through advice on liberalisation, market restructuring, regulation, commercial strategy and antitrust, as well as expert testimony and damages quantification in litigation and international arbitration. Our clients have included network operators, service providers, governments, regulators and technology and media companies.
