Specialist support for the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) sector

  • Whether you are looking for advice on organic growth, acquisitions, identifying suitable forms of funding, restructuring or even an exit strategy, market leading expertise can help ensure you realise your commercial ambitions.
  • We offer award winning legal support for TMT start-ups and established businesses.

The TMT sector is constantly evolving, and at a far faster pace than almost all other business sectors. This applies to both start-ups looking to carve out their territory and established businesses looking to keep ahead of the competition.

If you are a new business you will want to work with a team that not only brings innovation to the management of the here and now, but also is constantly aware of your future goals and commercial needs including having a clear plan for a possible exit strategy.

As an established business you may want support for your organic growth or with acquisitions, including attracting and retaining talent in a highly competitive environment.

Having access to advice from experts who have managed and negotiated around £1 billion worth of deals in TMT and related sectors will make any transactions much easier for you.

Whether you grow organically or by acquisition, TMT businesses can be capital hungry, and we will support you in identifying the most suitable forms of funding. Our experts also specialise in alternative funding as this may be more efficient for your needs than traditional sources of capital.

When the time is right in your growth plans we can help you restructure your business to maximise your financial returns, as, typically young and highly innovative businesses can evolve complicated corporate structures which can often hide their true value.

Our services to the TMT sector include:

  • Finance and investment agreements and arrangements
  • Employee incentives, including employee management incentives
  • Preparation for sale, maximisation of proceeds, seller protection
  • Corporate reorganisations and restructurings
  • Domestic and international acquisitions and disposals
  • Day to day business requirements such as tenders and outsourcing contracts

Why Moore Barlow?

We offer award winning and market leading expertise and can support you throughout your business lifecycle, providing expert legal advice to enable you to make the right commercial decisions.

We recognise that TMT businesses seek to push the boundaries, find solutions and improve on those that already exist. We share these beliefs and apply them to our practices, which is why our clients keep coming back to us with their new business ventures.

With offices in London, Southampton, Richmond, Woking, Lymington and Guildford, we’re ideally placed to offer specialist advice on a local, national and global level.
