Experienced Telecommunications Licensing Attorneys
Telecommunications licenses are a valuable asset and provide assurances to customers, business partners, investors and interconnecting carriers that your company is trustworthy and viable. Many domestic and international jurisdictions mandate that carriers obtain licenses or certifications of public convenience and necessity (CPCN) prior to providing telecommunications services. The process often involves identifying the applicable license, submitting an acceptable application with the regulatory authority and prosecuting that application at the responsible agency. Whether your application is successful is not a matter of chance, but instead requires experience, industry knowledge and personal contacts.
Thomas Lynch & Associates has successfully obtained licenses from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), most of the state regulatory authorities in the United States and, through affiliated firms, international regulatory bodies. We are prepared to assist your company in obtaining the licenses it needs to move forward.
Some of the licenses we can assist you with include the following:
License Transfers and Assignments
In addition to assisting your company with obtaining a new license, Thomas Lynch & Associates can help with the transfer or assignment of an existing license. A transfer of control involves a change in ownership of the licensee, but the name of the licensed entity does not change. An assignment involves moving the license from one entity to another. Many regulatory bodies, including the FCC, do not permit a telecommunications license to be transferred or assigned without prior Commission approval. We have assisted multi-billion enterprises, as well as small companies, in sucessfully transferring or assigning telecommunications licenses.
