Telecoms and Technology Infrastructure

Our team has a particular strength advising telecoms and infrastructure businesses with dispute resolution, SaaS platforms and negotiating the complexities of B2B and B2C licence agreements.

We advise software and hardware providers (and all the hybrid companies in-between) on how to protect, commercialise and enforce their telecoms and infrastructural solutions.

We are experts at helping our clients navigate the complexities around enterprise level agreements, wholesale telephony and SaaS solutions.

Over the years they have provided invaluable advice to our growing business, representing us on both commercial and private client matters and over a wide range of subjects ranging from domestic property law to international commercial negotiation.

I see Withers tech as more of a sparring partner than my lawyers. We spend time thinking through different scenarios and discussing how certain decisions could positively or negatively impact the future of Meatable, and this process crystallised our priorities. Sharmela finds the exact right balance between being the ‘formal lawyer’, and being pragmatic and thinking proactively.
