Negotiating the future of digital infrastructure in Europe
Find out how the balance of power in the European tower industry is shifting as more towers, buyers and governments enter the industry
Ashurst are one of the leading legal advisors to the tower industry. Following April 2019’s TowerXchange Meetup Europe, TowerXchange sat down with partners Nick Elverston and Amanda Hale to discuss how legal and regulatory changes are affecting the industry. Three big changes dominated the conversation: how negotiations are changing as the profile and volume of buyers and sellers changes; how convergence of digital infrastructure classes is affecting valuations and the operational constraints faced; and how the tower industry will change as regulators, governments and municipalities ramp up their support for mobile network and fibre roll outs.
TowerXchange: Since we spoke last year, what has Ashurst been up to in the telecoms infrastructure space?
Nick Elverston, Partner, Ashurst:
Ashurst have been busy, thank you for asking.
