Our Communications attorneys know, understand and work with them all.
We represent clients in audit, investigations, enforcement matters and appeals before the FCC and other federal agencies, as well as state commissions and attorneys general.
We have a keen understanding of the nuances associated with these processes and a reputation for integrity and credibility with these agencies, earned through decades of experience representing all types of carriers in matters, including the Universal Service Fund, Lifeline and E-Rate Programs, 911 services, carrier marketing, unauthorized billing (“cramming”) and TCPA.
