Space Law

The satellite sector is experiencing an explosive growth trajectory, driven by increasing demand for communications services, earth observation, navigation systems, and more.

From satellite launches and manufacturing to satellite-based services and applications, this thriving industry offers a vast field to maneuver. With lawyers from SVW our clients benefit from a team of specialists with regulatory, commercial and M&A expertise to help them navigate this field.

The sector is highly regulated, requiring comprehensive counselling to navigate the intricacies of national and international laws, licensing requirements, spectrum allocation, and contractual agreements. Simonsen Vogt Wiig has, through years of experience, an in depth understanding of electronic communications law, regulatory compliance, intellectual property, and dispute resolution.

We are working with major players in Norway within this sector and our unique combination of legal, business, and technical experience gives our clients great advantages.
