T elecommunications

Dating back to the landmark privatization of Telmex in 1990, where we advised France Cables et Radio (France Telecomm) as member of the winning consortium, our Firm has been at the forefront of the telecommunications industry, working on some of Mexico´s most complex and high-profile transactions and cases during that period.

Our activity in the sector includes transactional work, most notably mergers and acquisitions, lending and capital markets transactions, as well as advising prominent local and international telecommunications companies on competition and regulatory matters.

The Legal 500 highlights the following about our Telecommunications practice:

“Corporate powerhouse Creel, García-Cuéllar, Aiza y Enríquez, S.C.’s powerhouse practice provides ‘quick and easily-digestible advice on complex issues’, primarily undertaking high-end transactions in the TMT sector itself, or having a TMT aspect as well as all the concomitant regulatory and administrative aspects, along with data protection, disputes and representation before the regulators.”

‘Fast response and professional expertise regarding data protection and telecommunications questions.‘

In addition, Latin Lawyer mentions:

“The firm is especially noted for transactional work in this sector, and typically this work is complex, multifaceted and cross-border. The team regularly lands a place on big-league deals, such as the proposed merger of AT&T and Time Warner, a deal that necessitated several ‘firsts’ in the realm of antitrust and telecoms laws in Mexico.”
