The telecoms industry is a highly regulated and technical sector. Understanding the challenges of negotiating and drafting watertight contracts, on an international level is complex, to say the very least. These contracts can be difficult for even the most well equipped in-house lawyer and more often it is not the lawyers in the driving seat.

According to Lere Fashola, Founder of the ESQ Practical Lawyers Academy, it is essential that both commercial executives and legal counsel possess the knowledge to ensure that agreements are both within the laws and regulations and protect the commercial interests of the organisation.

This programme will therefore look at the key skills needed from both the legal and commercial viewpoints and how they can be integrated.
