With over 1 billion television viewers, 700 million mobile phone users, 500 million cable television viewers, 350 million broadband users, and over 100 domestic and satellite television channels, Chinese telecommunication isn’t taking a backseat to anyone or anything. It is big business in China. While still mostly controlled by the Chinese government, many foreign enterprise clients find that opportunities abound to be a supplier or customer in this sector.
Whether the foreign enterprise client is a cable operator, equipment supplier, satellite provider, wired or wireless telephone operator, broadband and internet service provider, television broadcaster, or media content provider, IPO Pang has the depth and breadth to support their legal and business needs. We have people on the ground, knowledgeable about the industry and well connected with both the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television, and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Such comprehensive background coupled with practical experience working in this field enables IPO Pang to provide in-depth, real-time counseling of crucial issues. Our experience includes structuring acquisitions, financing, contract preparation unique to this industry, procurement of ISP licenses and related licenses from relevant government departments, and assisting the foreign enterprise client with strategic planning and government relations. We offer a one-stop professional services program for our foreign enterprise clients to facilitate their closing of deals in the telecommunications field. In doing so, we draw on our strength of years of experience dealing with complex transactions and leverage this experience, along with in-depth knowledge of the law and regulations that govern this industry, to help our foreign enterprise clients reach their ultimate legal and business objectives.
