W&G Partner Brita Strandberg Speaks at 2012 Annual Lavender Law Conference

August 29, 2012

On August 25, 2012, Wiltshire & Grannis LLP (“W&G”) partner Brita Strandberg spoke on the 2012 Annual Lavender Law Conference panel: “First Amendment Issues in Media and Entertainment Law.”  Ms. Strandberg’s presentation focused on the current developments in regulation of the media and network operators.  The panel touched upon a variety of topics, including developments in FCC enforcement, defamation law and the effect on the LGBT community, the ongoing battle between privacy and free speech, and depiction of LGBT issues in the media.  Ms. Strandberg was joined on the panel by entertainment lawyers and First Amendment scholars.

Ms. Strandberg represents traditional telecommunications providers in matters of domestic and international regulatory strategy and compliance, and represents providers of a wide array of new technologies and services including VoIP, unified communications, online collaboration, social networking, and eCommerce.  Ms. Strandberg provides clients high-level strategic advice and advocacy in rulemakings and litigation, and also provides ongoing compliance advice to companies addressing universal service, 911, law enforcement access, consumer privacy, disability access, telemarketing, and related obligations.  She helps innovators and new entrants address the difficult challenges that arise when emerging services do not fit neatly into traditional regulatory boxes.

The Annual Lavender Law Conference & Career Fair is hosted each year by the National LGBT Bar Association.   The conference focuses on current legal topics affecting LGBT individuals, families, and the community.
