Telecommunications and information technology have a significant social, cultural and economic impact on modern society and are central to building a global presence.
Disputes in telecommunications and IT often involve joint ventures, syndicated transactions, cross-border consortiums and other contractual frameworks. The establishment of a consortium typically has both legal and commercial implications, and any resulting dispute often involves complex technical as well as regulatory challenges.
