Networks & telecom

With smart cities, IoT, 5G and other digital transformations, telecom networks face increasing demand of speed and capacity. Where fibre optics cannot satisfy the increasing use of data the market will densify the network by way of small cells, terrestrial connection, hybrid techniques, 5G and other wireless techniques. We have expertise in the implications of these developments across all relevant legal areas.


For energy infrastructure, the transition to sustainable energy sources is an important driver for change. As we move from centralised to decentralised energy sources, new networks and connections must be provided and maintained. We have knowledge regarding the issues arising in the contracting, execution and maintenance of both complex and first-of-its kind networks, from EV-charging infrastructure and energy neutral buildings to smart high-voltage (mono pylon) grids.
