They come to us for our unrivalled legal talent and our ability to help them implement their strategic business goals and identify new business opportunities in the rapidly converging communications, media and technology fields.
Bingham has one of the largest TMT practices in the world with 40 lawyers and professionals. Our lawyers have played a role in nearly every significant development in the communications industry in the past quarter century, in the United States and internationally.
