Telecommunications Law

“Construction Legal is a key partner of Fiber Corp across all our projects. Due to the detailed knowledge that Construction Legal has of the complex requirements of the telecommunications legislation, Fiber Corp has seen material benefits to our business through robust, practical and commercially informed legal advice.

Jessica and her team’s advice has enabled us to navigate the complicated requirements for working with residential multi-dwelling development projects. This advice has taken the form of contract documents for the installation of our fibre optic network, as well as access agreements and negotiation with our government and private sector organisations.

As our portfolio of projects continues to expand, we look forward to having Construction Legal be a trusted member of our team.”
