Telecommunications - Taiwan           


       Leader in Telecommunications and Media 

As Taiwan's premier legal service provider in Telecom and Media, we are retained by various government agencies in order to provide legal advice and support with the drafting of key government legislation.

Recognizing our vast experience in Telecom and Media, both local and multinational organizations rely on Shay & Partners for sound counsel and assistance with strategic planning, corporate structuring, financing, licensing and regulatory compliance issues. We assist clients with their ongoing business operations including dealing with consumer and corporate complaints. We also support clients with their legislative lobbying efforts.

The professionals at Shay & Partners have considerable experience representing cable TV operators on a broad range of issues. We have been instrumental in the liberalization of Taiwan's media industry. In 2002, we brought together various international cable TV operators, in order to form an industry association, the “Cable Broadband Institute in Taiwan”. We have worked closely with this association in order to successfully lobby the Government Information Office (the media authority), Executive Yuan and Legislative Yuan for amendments to the Cable Broadcasting Law. This was done in order to create a more competitive environment for the Cable industry in Taiwan.
