Practice/Industry Group Overview
Mayer Brown has a long history of providing clients in the wireless, satellite, technology and telecommunication sectors with practical and pragmatic legal support. Our lawyers bring this strength and experience to bear on every representation of clients in the industry. Our efforts to focus on the industry, to understand in a practical sense the workings and economics of the sector, and to be at the forefront of legal developments impacting wireless, satellite and telecommunication companies have led to our strong reputation in this field.
Many of our team members have been employed in, or seconded to, companies operating in the Technology, Media and Telecommunications sector which adds to the breadth of perspective we gain through the global reach of our practice. We bring together transactional, litigation and regulatory skills to help clients use the power of technology to drive business results.

With our strong footprint, including 21 offices in key business centers across the Americas, Europe and Asia, Mayer Brown’s global platform allows us the capability to provide exceptional service to our clients across the globe.
Technology, Media and Telecommunications is a primary sector focus of the firm. This sector-focused approach has allowed Mayer Brown to gain vast experience in representing Technology, Media and Telecommunications companies in their business affairs around the world. Our experience covers the full range of transactions, including M&A, a wide range of commercial agreements, (particularly outsourcing), financing and refinancing, litigation and regulation in developed Technology, Media and Telecommunications markets.
With on the ground teams in the key centres directing commercial and regulatory policy in Washington DC, Brussels, London, Hong Kong, and Beijing – we are able to support our clients on all the legal regulatory and commercial issues affecting them. Key differentiators between Mayer Brown and many other firms providing support in this sector are the significant number of team members who have been employed in, or seconded to, companies operating in the Technology, Media and Telecommunications sector and the breadth of perspective we gain through the global reach of our practice.
