The telecommunications industry is experiencing rapid regulatory changes and we can assist your company in complying with existing and new requirements. We also monitor the industry to keep abreast of new developments and provide our clients with regular updates on the state of the industry.

Telecommunications Licenses

We have assisted entities from around the world with license applications at the FCC and with the various U.S. states. From FCC 214 licenses to wireless telecom licenses, we have the experience required and the contacts at the FCC to advise clients on the regulations and assist them in obtaining prompt approval for their licensing needs.

Telecommunications Transactions

We have negotiated some of the largest commercial and strategic agreements in the telecommunications industry. From agreements to purchase or sell telecom services to equipment purchase agreements, management contracts, outsourcing agreements and many other transactions, our attorneys are preferred by many large and small telecom carriers and their customers.

Telecom Taxes

The taxation of telecommunications services is complex and varied, and many governmental entities impose criminal penalties for failure to comply. From federal taxes to individual state taxes, we can assist your company with identifying applicable taxes, surcharges and fees as well as completing and filing the appropriate forms.

State Licenses

In addition to providing assistance with FCC licensing and regulatory requirements, we can also assist you in obtaining any required licenses from state public utility commissions, including CLEC and IXC licenses. Having obtained licenses on behalf of clients in almost all 50 states, we are familiar with the various licensing regimes across the country.
