The roundtable will review key issues to consider when entering these relationships, common pitfalls to avoid, and contracting best practices.

According to PTC's website, the annual conference is the Asia-Pacific's premier telecommunications event. The three-day event focuses on planning, networking, and discovering what the upcoming year will bring. “PTC’17: Changing Realities will explore the changing realities of business, customer demands, the global economy, and the global regulatory environment to help attendees identify how these new realities will affect them and how they can chart their own paths through the dynamic changes of the industry,” according to the conference’s website.

Hawa focuses his practice on corporate and securities law, with an emphasis on the telecommunications, media, and technology industries, domestically and internationally. Hawa regularly advises public and private companies, private equity firms, investment banks, and creditors’ committees on a variety of matters, including mergers and acquisitions, bankruptcies and restructurings, investments, financing arrangements, licensing agreements, and commercial transactions. Hawa assists clients with the negotiation of transactions in the cloud computing space, including the negotiation of data center and co-location leases, globally.
