People Marcus Bagnall

Marcus Bagnall


Marcus is a leading telecoms and technology specialist with over 15 years’ experience advising TMT sector clients and their sponsors on commercial and regulatory aspects of significant digital infrastructure and industry digitalisation arrangements.

“I provide commercial and regulatory advice to technology, media and telecoms clients in Europe, Australia and the Middle East on strategic, technical and complex telecommunications and technology arrangements.

I have a wealth of experience both in private practice and in-house, handling complex telecommunications and technology commercial arrangements regarding the delivery of next-generation networks and digital infrastructure. I’ve worked on industry-shaping arrangements including a Europe-wide tower demerger, national telecommunications infrastructure carve-outs, fibre network build and wholesale services arrangements, subsea cable systems, smart city implementation projects and significant technology procurement and outsourcing agreements.

I also advise on commercial and regulatory issues arising from cutting-edge technology developments and industry digitalisation driven by blockchain-based decentralisation and AI solutions. I’ve advised on the deployment and adoption of blockchain solutions in various industries, crypto-based payment services, token classification, NFT development and collaborations. In addition, I advise on M&A transactions, fundraising, structuring and governance, IP licensing, protection and exploitation and privacy / data protection matters.

I’m excited about the opportunities arising from industry digitalisation and evolving network technologies and applying my experience gained across different jurisdictions to these new challenges.”
