Connect with the telco experts

If you're a telco, telco corporate customer, or supplier to telcos, give us a call. We've worked on a wide range of projects, contracts and disputes in the telco space - covering regulatory issues to transactional commercial deals.

For example, recently we implemented the contract framework and terms for a $100M network rollout for a start-up telco that is a successful key player in the New Zealand market. We've advised everyone in the industry from contractors to businesses, and our experience has helped shape the telecommunications regulatory landscape.

Our rare blend of wider telecommunications experience with regulatory aspects and a background in litigation enables us to stitch together innovative solutions for our clients that can provide real value. This innovative approach, for example, produced two wins for our clients in the last 12 months - around $20M in each case.

Chambers and Partners, the highly regarded 2012 directory of leading lawyers, notes that Wigley + Company "is admired by the wider legal community for its comprehensive abilities in the telecoms regulatory arena. Sources say: 'A very entrepreneurial, specialist take on telecoms regulatory projects'." 

With our regulatory, legal and commercial knowledge, we can get up to speed with your objectives and issues to quickly identify legal options and solutions that can deliver value and give you an edge.
