Last Updated: 11 June 2003

The Corporate Group at Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP has advised Cable & Wireless on their entering into conditional agreements to sell all of its businesses that relate to customers requiring domestic-only services in Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden and Russia in Northern Europe as well as Switzerland for 2.3 million Euros.

IP-eYe, backed by senior managers currently within Cable & Wireless' Northern European business, is buying the domestic businesses in the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and Russia. Smart Telecom, a well-established Swiss telecommunications company is to buy Cable & Wireless' Swiss domestic business.

The disposals are part of Cable & Wireless' strategy announced in November to focus on serving multi-national enterprises and service providers in continental Europe and to withdraw from domestic-only services.

Senior partner Paul Maher led the Mayer, Brown Rowe & Maw team and was assisted by corporate partner Fiona Adams and assistant solicitors Jonathan Crawford and Mick Sheehy.

IP-eYe was advised by Dutch firm Van Riet en Associees. Smart Telecom was advised by Carrard Paschoud Heim & Associés of Lausanne Switzerland.
