Because of HWG’s long-standing prominence in the field of telecommunications regulation, we are a natural choice for cases in which a successful outcome demands lawyers who know telecommunications law and technology at least as well as they know the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Whether the underlying issue is one of commercial contract, regulatory enforcement, or jurisdictional line-drawing, our complementary strengths in these “crossover” cases allow us to give our clients truly exceptional representation with incredible efficiency.
