Our telecommunications practice offers a comprehensive telecommunications industry practice and represents:

  • Private communications systems and users, including large corporations, financial institutions, health care institutions, universities, internet service providers ("ISPs") and others that routinely operate telecommunications networks or which transmit specialized video, high speed voice and/or data communications, police and other public safety and/or mobile radio systems' electronic site owners and managers, and providers of private fiber optic lines, wireless and private carrier paging and microwave services.

  • The broadcasting/cable/entertainment industry, including radio and television stations, program producers, syndicators, talent, cable television systems and satellite distribution systems.

Our representation of telecommunications clients encompasses all segments of the telecommunications industry — we appear before the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC"), state public utility commissions, and federal and state courts on regulatory and litigation matters. Our telecommunications practice also represents broadcasting and cable television companies, communications common and incumbent and competitive local exchange carriers and wireless carriers and other services providers in transactions of all kinds, including public and private offerings of securities. We also advise, counsel and represent telecommunications service providers in antitrust and business litigation.

We also represents clients involved in the growing variety of enhanced advanced information service and electronic transmission and delivery technologies including wireline, wireless, microwave, cellular, satellite, PCS, broadband, cable and fiber optic.
