The Froriep TMT practice acts in contentious and non-contentious cases for clients in the technology, media and telecoms industry. In this fast-moving sector, our team has established a reputation for delivering a durable and often innovative solution to a client’s legal problem, underpinned by a solid understanding of their industry.

From Internet service providers and telecoms companies to the manufacturers of semiconductor chips or medical devices. From start-up companies to publicly traded market leaders and from individual inventors to large R&D departments, the TMT team adapts to each case and every client, based on experience, technical understanding and a thoroughly commercial approach.

We are experienced in IT outsourcing projects and other IT-related contracts. We have found new and innovative solutions for technology partnerships between industry and public bodies. We have often advised on the establishment, operation and risk management for joint ventures.

Our team members also advise on television broadcasting rights and film production agreements, as well as sponsorship, advertising, endorsement and product placement agreements.

We frequently collaborate closely with the intellectual property, competition, M&A and employment law practices. Here, Froriep’s ability to share knowledge and create multidisciplinary teams with ease ensures that our TMT clients get the very best service and advice.

Q: Is there one thing that defines the Froriep TMT practice?

A: “A solution-orientated approach rather than a problem-orientated approach is our defining feature. To identify and work with the interests of the client, rather than just the problem of the client.”
