Since the liberalisation of the German telecommunications market in 1997, we have been closely involved with all legal matters pertaining to this development. From the drawing up of the initial interconnection agreements with Deutsche Telekom, we continue to guide our clients through the full spectrum of telecommunications legislation, from obtaining licences to market regulation.
The aim of our activities in this field is to continue helping reputable German and international companies achieve their goals and objectives by providing a strong legal foundation. As a matter of course, we undertake project specific briefs and work in co-operation with our clients’ departments as closely as possible. We realise that the success of any venture hinges not only upon an understanding of the legal matters involved, but the type of lateral thinking that can apply this information directly into a business context, enabling projects and products to be realised quickly and efficiently.

- Advice and assistance in drawing up interconnection agreements with Deutsche Telekom
