worldwise compliance



Telecommunications services are converging rapidly – cable, traditional telephone, satellite and Wi-Fi are all competing to occupy the same space and win the same customers. Telecommunications law likewise continues to evolve as telecommunications companies adjust their structures for providing services to take advantage of new technologies and regulatory disparities, which can dramatically affect the strategic deployment of resources.
