Electronic communications law is a blend of law, economics, engineering and policy, which is complicated by the rapid pace of change in information and communication technology, creating significant challenges for industry players. The central feature of the services provided by Ellipsis is the demystification of a complex area of law and technology and its distillation into simple, practical advice.

Ellipsis is involved in all stages of the communications law and regulation-making process on an ongoing basis, and liaises closely with, inter alia, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA), the Department of Telecommunications and Postal Services, the Department of Communications, the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development, law enforcement agencies, the Film and Publications Board and other Government entities.

Over time, Ellipsis has evolved into a group of affiliated companies that each specialises in catering to the needs of customers and industry associations in the ICT and Telecommunications industries.
