About the group

The purpose of the Legal SIG is to promote best practice on a range of legal issues for the benefit of a broad range of wireless and technology companies. Meetings will be convened four times a year.

Many participants of the Legal SIG are also willing to provide contributions and input to any other Cambridge Wireless SIG. Requests should, in the first instance, be directed to any of the Legal SIG Champions (details below) or to Abhi Naha at Cambridge Wireless.

Topics under discussion for future events include:

  • Open source best practice
  • M&A in the wireless and technology sectors
  • Licensing Masterclass – managing risk
  • Export controls
  • Supporting HR

Follow us on Twitter @CambWireless, and join the conversation using #CWLegal
