Communications and Media

Using our powerful global network, we work on many of the largest and most high-profile Communications and Media transactions and cases.

Supporting the Communications and Media sector is a key priority for Allen & Overy and we have a dedicated sector group which allows us to foster and share industry knowledge and expertise across our offices and legal disciplines. As many of our clients in the Communications and Media industry operate across borders, we support them by being able to combine our talents and resources to provide solutions in almost any country, at any time.

Few firms can deliver the combination of experience and resource that is needed to handle the most important matters. Our team benefits from experience acquired not only in private practice but also in-house at leading Communications and Media companies and on secondments to corporates and regulatory bodies.

This means we provide relevant industry-focused advice, delivered quickly to ensure that we add value from day one. So, irrespective of the location, the size, or the complexity of the matter, you can be confident that we have the right team in the right place.
