Wiersholm’s lawyers have experience from telecommunication enterprises, and we have, therefore, the required comprehension of both the technical and commercial issues. We provide Norwegian and foreign clients with strategic legal advice related to regulatory, commercial and operational issues.
In our contact with the authorities (Norwegian Post and Telecommunications Authority, Norwegian Competition Authority, ESA and other sector-specific bodies), we provide assistance with regard to frequency questions (mobile, satellite, etc.), number administration, and the legal requirements for providers of electronic communication services. We have extensive knowledge of the regulatory framework established by special legislation for electronic communication services that applies to the players in the telecommunication sector, in particular questions related to the duties of companies with a strong market position and the rights of other companies.
Our lawyers have long experience with the various relationships between the players in the industry, in particular the industry-specific contacts that are used, such as supply contracts for electronic communication services (transmission, land-line telephony and mobile telephony services), interconnection agreements (termination and origination), access agreements for telecommunication networks (operator access, Mobile Virtual Network Operator agreements, resale contracts, roaming agreements), co-localisation agreements, etc.
Our lawyers speak at industry seminars and lecture on telecommunication law at the Faculty of Law.
