Our firm has vast experience in local telecommunications laws and regulations acquired through years of representing major local and international telecommunication companies. We have provided opinions for a major telecommunications and telecoms infrastructure company on market entry strategy, statutory applications, and procurement of prescribed licenses. This generally involved pre-incorporation advice on the law relating to telecoms, governmental liaison, representation in all negotiations between the client and relevant government departments and regulatory bodies, securing applicable consents and approvals, and subsequent advice on incorporation and post-incorporation procedures and tax liability under Cameroonian law. We are able to assist with the drafting and review of important documents such as memoranda of understanding, service user agreements, and NDAs between key stakeholders in the sector. We are also able to assist in the processing of licences for the provision of varied services within the telecoms sector.
Further, we have a protracted background in the areas of technology, particularly in information technology and information communications technology, within which time our clients have been best served through our dynamic IP Law practice area.
In general, we also advice our clients on regulatory and compliance aspects, competition issues, outsourcing projects, cybersecurity, data protection and privacy issues, e-payment systems and e-commerce. Where necessary we engage with our clients and leverage our resources and local knowledge to structure a transaction that is tailor made for the Cameroon market. This could include arrangements concerning privatisation, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, project collaboration agreements, and interconnectivity agreements.
