Communications is a vital component of commerce and business. The laws and regulations that apply to communications devices, technologies and services can have a significant positive or adverse effect on your business costs and opportunities. We represent companies that provide communication services; manufacture, sell or use communication equipment and devices; invest in communications assets or businesses; and license, acquire or distribute content delivered through communications networks. We understand the federal and state laws and regulations that affect every aspect of the communications ecosystem. With a strong combination of regulatory, transactional, litigation, dispute resolution and enforcement experience in the communications field, we deliver practical and grounded counsel on high-impact areas, including a wide range of Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations and policies, such as spectrum policy, licensing and use, 5G and other communications infrastructure, broadband regulation, telehealth, interconnection, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), privacy and data security, as well as Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) application processes, audits and appeals. Beyond the FCC, clients rely on us to advise them on how to benefit from the latest regulatory activities or emerging opportunities, such as Smart Cities, Smart Grids, the Internet of Things (IoT), telehealth policies and artificial intelligence. And when your business demands direct interaction with government agencies to shape policy or achieve other results, we are ready to advocate on your behalf. We represent client interests before the FCC, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the Department of State and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
