Our TMT lawyers guide businesses seeking to build new telecommunications networks or employ existing technology and media to further other goals. Effectively using both developing and existing channels of communication requires an interdisciplinary approach. We have a team of lawyers with solid backgrounds, a wealth of experience, and a deep understanding of the underlying technologies involved in these often complex and innovative transactions.
We advise on various technology and commercial transactions ranging from distributorships, agencies, joint offerings, media production, payments, logistics, and manufacturing (including defense manufacturers).
We have the knowledge and experience to provide you with extensive legal and commercial advice on the whole gamut of issues related to technology, media, and telecommunications, including:
- Local and international laws;
- Governmental regulations;
- Corporate transactions;
- Deal structuring;
- Project development and management;
- Transportation; and,
- Intellectual property rights.
We frequently handle the negotiating and drafting of:
- Service-level agreements;
- Licensing agreements;
- Exclusive use agreements;
- Technology transfer agreements; and,
- Other relevant agreements that help our clients maximize the return on investment and safeguard their business and commercial interests.
Our approach to each engagement is customized based on the region where the matter or transaction occurs, and the related companies or governmental entities involved. For example, we represent several technology companies negotiating and structuring high-value transactions with the Saudi Telecom Company (STC). Our fluency in English and Arabic and understanding of the STC regulations in place are competitive advantages that are part of the value of the legal services we deliver. We also represent the Saudi Ministry of Housing Building Technology Stimulus Program (BTSP) in structuring and implementing its construction technology initiative of policies to motivate the private sector to invest in building technology in partnership with international construction firms. Our understanding of local projects and initiatives and our ability to call upon crucial government stakeholders are differentiators from our peer firms.
