Germany: Industry focus

Telecoms

Within: Telecoms

Baker McKenzie is a heavyweight for regulatory matters and is also continuing to successfully expand its telecoms practice to handle machine-to- machine communication (M2M) matters. A highlights in this area was assisting an automotive manufacturer with the implementation of connected car services; practice head Joachim Scherer and counsel Caroline Heinickel advised on the telecoms law requirements of such automotive services, the service registration at the responsible authorities and the development of a compliance system. The Frankfurt office centrally managed the advice in over 40 jurisdictions across the globe. In addition to an M2M focus, OTT services and broadband expansion are two other pillars of the practice. In other work, the team provided an expert opinion and advised on a study on protection and security in electronic communication for the Hessian Ministry of Economy. The firm’s own task force on cyber security, led by Heinickel together with IT expert Holger Lutz and patent lawyer Heiko Haller, is another unique feature. Telefónica is a key client.

  • The New Turkish Code of Obligations: Important Changes for Leases of Residential & Business Premises

    For decades, the primary Turkish laws governing leases of residential and business premises have been the Law on Leasing Real Property dated May 27, 1955 (the “Lease Law”) and the Turkish Code of Obligations No. 818 dated April 22, 1926 (the “Obligations Code”). Both of these laws, however, will be repealed and replaced with the new Turkish Code of Obligations No. 6098 dated January 11, 2011 (the “New Obligations Code”), which will enter into force on July 7, 2012.
