Technology, Media and Telecommunications

Every industry changes over time, but none so constantly and as rapidly as Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT).

We understand that working at the leading edge of TMT can present problems and challenges as yet unknown or fully understood.  Convergence, rapid changes in information technology, infrastructure and regulatory challenges - there is a lot to navigate.

We provide insight and technical expertise to minimise obstacles and help clear a path forward.

We act for many public and private customers and suppliers of TMT goods and services.  Our TMT team has extensive experience in information technology transactions, software licensing, support, maintenance, distribution, ISP subscriber and ASP agreements, outsourcing and managing consultancy services.  McCullough Robertson was also listed as a noted firm for TMT in the Chambers Asia Pacific 2015 edition.

In today’s competitive marketplace the effective use of websites and internet services is vital.  We have considerable experience in all aspects of internet advertising and management to help you navigate the complex set of rules and regulations and make the most of your internet presence.

We also provide the full range of intellectual property advice including intellectual property protection and due diligence, research and development agreements, technology transfer and litigation.  The firm has been recognised as a leading Asian practice in the 2015 Asia IP Profiles.

Organisations will continue to face technological change and regulatory pressures.  Our team provide a depth of experience and understanding of key trends and merging issues facing TMT operators – issues such as convergence, outsourcing, regulations, mergers and acquisitions, infrastructure sharing, emerging markets or next-generation services.

Our approach

Industry knowledge is the key.  And real knowledge comes from relationships built over time.  We have been acting for a major television network for close to twenty years – closely following and advising on the impact of emerging and evolving technology on TV and associated media.

Our partners have worked in major telecoms and others have science qualifications and experience.

Our collaborative approach involves strategic planning, open communication and ongoing consultation with clients to produce outcomes that are practical and commercially acceptable.

We tailor our advice to meet your needs, because every client and every matter is different.  We look at the whole issue, not just a small piece and we develop pragmatic solutions in response to commercial issues.

We understand the importance of the balance between reasonable rates, efficient use of resources and realistic time estimates.

The industry throws up enough surprises - you don’t need any from your legal team.
