Launch your ambition in the space sector

Space & Satellite

The commercial space and satellite sector is growing rapidly as demand for space data and satellite enabled communications increases and access to space and space data becomes more cost effective.

Over £360 billion of UK economic activity is already supported by satellite infrastructure and, with an ambitious national space strategy in place to more than double the UK’s share of the global space economy by 2030, the sector is set to grow exponentially.

It has never been more vital to make sure you have the right legal advisors on board to get your project off the ground. Foot Anstey’s specialist space and satellite team is embedded in the sector and at forefront of the latest legal developments, supporting businesses and organisations in the upstream and downstream, across the UK and internationally.
