Overview

Our Telecommunications practice spans public and private telecommunications businesses of varying sizes in local, regional and national markets. We put our legal and business knowledge to work to help build and sustain thriving businesses, and to evaluate strategic options in an ever-changing and challenging market.

Clients value our proactive approach, which not only allows us to develop and implement a plan based on the client's objectives and concerns, but also to recognize, anticipate and avoid potential obstacles. Our attorneys have assisted wireless providers, ISPs, wireline carriers, fiber and tower companies, electric utilities, cooperatives, and municipalities in state and federal regulatory law. As skilled negotiators, we also have experience in matters involving the negotiation and documentation of agreements, regulatory compliance and authorization, right-of-way litigation and creditor rights matters.

Our presence in Washington, DC, as well as numerous state jurisdictions, gives our attorneys the unique opportunity to assist clients before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and various state public service commissions. Such geographic diversity allows us additional insight into regulatory developments nationwide.
