As you will have seen from our website, our business focuses on advising the space, satellite and telecommunications sector across all of upstream satellite and component manufacturing, UK based and international launch facilities, in-orbit and spectrum regulation and downstream commercial applications of communications, data and imagery. Our work often expands into adjacent sectors and areas however.

Many thanks for your interest.
