& Technology


Appleby’s Telecommunications and Technology team advises corporate entities and individuals on the establishment and operation of telecommunications and technology companies.

Areas covered include:

  • Owning and operating fibre optic cables, satellites, satellite constellations and fibre optic cable networks
  • Owning and operating telecommunications support facilities
  • Owning, licensing and developing intellectual property rights and patents
  • Registration of trade marks in Bermuda, the Caribbean, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey and several countries in Latin America

Our telecommunications and technology lawyers have an in-depth understanding of the sector and, as such, are able to provide legal solutions from solving the practicalities of basic transactions to the more difficult, technical issues associated with complex structured products.  For instance, we have advised in relation to the structuring and operation of joint venture companies and the creation of companies that, after private equity investment, have subsequently been taken public.
