HWG has extensive experience preparing and negotiating agreements specific to the telecommunications and media industries.  HWG regularly prepares and negotiates agreements for subsea cable and terrestrial IRUs, MVNOs, utility pole attachments, cable landing stations, spectrum leases, satellite transponder purchases, LMAs, and wireline intercarrier and carrier-customer arrangements.  As part of our corporate and commercial practice we structure complex telecommunications network deployment contractual arrangements.

HWG also represents buyers and sellers in private company mergers and acquisitions.  Our experience includes advising entrepreneurs selling their businesses, and we work creatively to structure those transactions where the entrepreneur will continue to be involved in the business.

HWG provides general corporate and commercial advice, with an emphasis on advising start-up companies in the fields of technology and telecommunications.  We prepare governance documents and assist with early-stage financing. We also advise start-up companies in connection with commercial contracts and intellectual property licensing and protection.



At HWG, we’re always looking for smart, talented people to add to our team.
