Curtis’ telecommunications clients include some of the industry’s largest public companies, underwriters and governments in deals and projects across the globe. Our telecommunications attorneys, some of whom have worked in house with national telecoms companies, leverage the firm’s multijurisdictional presence and industry experience to assist clients in their business strategies and objectives.
The telecommunications industry today is marked by unprecedented consolidation, new and transformative hardware and software technologies and aggressive oversight by international regulatory authorities. This rapidly evolving environment presents opportunities for global industry players.
Curtis has experience in global international and regional telecommunications matters that extends to financings, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and other strategic alliances, international regulatory and tax matters, and bankruptcy and creditors’ rights. The telecommunications team demonstrates the firm's international focus, having worked on transactions in the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Canada, France, Luxembourg, Denmark, Kosovo, Argentina, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Panama, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic and Brazil.
Curtis telecommunications lawyers analyze local legal, political and regulatory frameworks, including antitrust, labor and employment, corporate governance and securities regulations; analyze bidding rules and documents and prepare for the bid process; negotiate concessions, stock purchase and asset agreements and licenses; manage the due diligence process, including working with local counsel; create local subsidiaries, including identifying potential local partners; and negotiate financing arrangements with international lenders.
The firm also has significant experience in structuring consortium agreements and offers clients expertise in implementing appropriate regulatory structures and negotiating and drafting “build out” and consortium-related documents, such as contracts of association, shareholder and public registration of share agreements, guarantees and financing documents.
The team draws upon the resources of the firm as required for any particular transaction. To provide clients with full-service representation, the group coordinates efforts with practitioners across offices and in other practice groups.
