IT & TELECOMS

The pace of growth and change in the IT and telecoms sectors has been accompanied by an evolution in the work carried out by PLMJ’s lawyers, as well as in their levels of specialisation and sector-specific skills.

PLMJ provides a full range of legal advice to operators and investors in the communications and telecoms sectors, enabling our clients to benefit from an across-the-board approach to the applicable legislative and regulatory provisions and from our assistance in preparing them to face any changes that may impact their businesses.

A major part of our know-how and experience is in the negotiation of concession and supply contracts. We also focus on the regulatory and other matters that affect the business activity of Portuguese and international market operators and we have helped a number of these international operators to set up their businesses here in Portugal.

We have also built up a significant practice in the field of information technology. Our work includes traditional software licensing as well as e-commerce, IT crimes, data protection and domain names. We represent Portuguese and international software agents and companies and provide legal assistance to regular clients whenever information and telecommunications technologies are at issue.
