Space & Satellite

Back to Corporate and Commercial

Our space and satellite team is ranked in the first tier in the latest edition of Legal 500.

DQ is a founder member of the Isle of Man chapter of the Society of Satellite Professionals International and regularly attends industry events and conferences.

The Isle of Man’s reputation as a leading jurisdiction for the conduct of space and satellite business is universally acknowledged within the industry and well deserved. The Isle of Man government’s pro-space policies, zero corporate tax, no insurance premium tax and a highly skilled and experienced network of space professionals makes the Isle of Man the obvious choice for international space and satellite business.

In 2007, the International Space University launched the International Institute of Space Commerce as the world’s leading authority on space commerce.  It is located at the International Business School in the Isle of Man to capitalise on the Island’s growing importance as a space industry jurisdiction.

Head of our space and satellite team, Tom Maher, was the founding Chairman of the Isle of Man Space Industry Forum, studied at the International Space University in Strasbourg and has acted for some of the major players in this market.  Tom has also written for Satellite Finance, the leading industry journal.
