Technology and Telecom

Simonsen Vogt Wiig is top tier-ranked in these sectors by both Chambers and Partners and Legal 500, and has Norway's largest group of lawyers within TMT.

Coming from separate industries and value chains, the communications and media industries are rapidly merging, creating significant challenges for regulators. National players face common challenges through the steadily increasing global competition. Through its longstanding leading position in the market, Simonsen Vogt Wiig has developed a deep understanding of the industries, commercial drivers, technology and the legal framework that distinguishes these markets.

Our team has industry and government experience and our attorneys have played a key role forming the legislation in this area. Simonsen Vogt Wiig has been advising a range of the top clients within the communications industry since the start of the deregulation of the market in Norway. Our unrivalled expertise within the industry includes advising on many of the largest, most complex and ground-breaking transactions in recent years, inter alia in a number of complex frequency auctions, network roll-out, technology procurements and sector-specific regulations.

The largest media companies in Norway have chosen Simonsen Vogt Wiig as its preferred advisor in legal matters. We work with complex regulatory issues, property rights issues, disputes, contract negotiations and transactions, and have carried out a number of assignments for the authorities, including heading the Media Law Committee appointed by the Norwegian Government.
