The lawyers in our communications practice understand not only the rules and regulations of communications law, but how they get made.  We have held important positions at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Office of the United States Trade Representative, the Commerce Department, and on United States Senate and House of Representative staffs.

We represent communications and information technology firms before the courts, the FCC, the Congress, national executive agencies and state public utility commissions. We also represent clients before foreign governments and regulatory agencies both directly and through foreign-based affiliates. We are well versed in virtually every area of communications law, including those related to advanced technologies.  Our attorneys also have substantial expertise in handling telecommunications-related business transactions, and technology-related export control, homeland security, and national security issues. 

In all of these areas, we combine first-rate understanding of the law and policy with a keen understanding of the political and public relations forces that shape public policy battles to help fashion innovative, winning strategies.  Our past experience as government policymakers and advisors enables us to provide valuable insight and the highest level of service to our clients.
