Baker & McKenzie has been a key player in the modernization of Argentina’s telecommunication industry from the very beginning. For years, our telecommunications and technology lawyers have been actively involved in privatizations, market deregulation and telecom and broadcasting licensing.
We advise the leading local telecom and technology companies on regulatory, corporate and infrastructure matters and help privatize the largest telecommunications companies in Latin America. We represent investors and corporations in raising capital and provide telecom regulatory advice to the governments of Bolivia, El Salvador, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay.
We have extensive experience advising clients on buying TV networks and radio stations in accordance with the rules set forth by the Secretariat of Communications (SC), the National Communications Commission (CNC) and the Federal Broadcasting Commission (COMFER). We also help Internet startups devise their corporate and tax structures, working with lawyers in our US and Latin American offices to advise clients on large-scale projects involving multiple countries.
