Technology, Media and Telecoms

The telecommunications, media and technology (TMT) sector, particularly in developing Asia and Indochina, has been fast-paced, dynamic and continually evolving. The expanding reach of the internet and online applications, including FinTech and blockchain, has been particularly significant in countries such as Myanmar, Vietnam and Cambodia, where entrants and investors have allowed more and more people access to information, online services and mobile platforms.

Through our network of offices in the region, our lawyers have been uniquely placed in advising clients in this challenging sector, where they have had the opportunity to advise some of the largest investors in their roll-out of various products, services and investments.

Combining local knowledge, international expertise and technical understanding to achieve effective and unique business structures, our lawyers regularly advise in-country and cross-jurisdictional clients on transactional and regulatory matters, including projects involving telecommunications infrastructure and services, digital media, license application and maintenance, anti-trust and competition, land acquisition and due diligence, data privacy, financial technology and blockchain systems.

Some of our representative engagements in this area of practice include:

  • Providing advisory to an international telecommunications infrastructure and fibre-optic cable company with regards to Myanmar, Cambodia and Lao’s evolving regulatory framework and overhauled telecommunications sector
  • Assisting a telecommunications operator in Myanmar in the conduct of a site acquisition exercise involving at least 1,300 tower sites, including land due diligence and lease negotiations
