Telecoms and Media

The telecommunications and media industries are among the fastest moving and most innovative industries around the world. Whether you are an IT, telecommunications or media business, you are looking to stay up to speed and ahead of the competition. While Working with Rotenberg & Co. you benefit from working with professional advisers with a thorough understanding of the regulatory, technical and commercial environment in which you operate.

We work closely with both commercial and public broadcasters to shape the future of the industry in Israel and also advise Israeli broadcasters operating abroad. Our extensive roster comprises production houses, telecommunications operators and many websites and a large number of advertisers, who must comply with an array of complex and diverse advertising regulations in relation to television, internet, radio and print media.

We marry this deep industry insight with the attention of partners with a proven track record in media and telecommunications since its heyday.
