Disruptions, business disputes, consumer lawsuits and regulatory investigations and enforcement actions can be costly – in economic damages, sanctions and injury to brand reputation and competitive advantage, and in diverting valuable time, management focus and company resources away from core business objectives.
Our Communications Litigation team pairs deep knowledge of the regulatory landscape with courtroom-tested skills and experience to represent clients in all types of actions, in federal and state courts, before regulators, and with mediators and arbitrators. Working collaboratively in cross-disciplinary teams built to tackle the legal issues at hand, we represent companies in intellectual property matters, consumer protection suits and class actions, Telephone Consumer Protection Act cases, white collar criminal investigations and related civil litigation, state and federal preemption cases and actions to enforce state and federal telecommunications and energy laws.
Our Communications attorneys have earned a reputation for credibility and integrity representing clients in proceedings before the Federal Communications Commission and state public utility commissions, as well as in investigations and enforcement actions by the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Justice, inspectors general and state attorneys general.
In intercarrier compensation matters, we help carriers enforce their rights when other providers fail to meet their obligations, negotiating favorable settlements and, when necessary, advocating aggressively for our clients’ interests before federal and state regulators, and in federal and state courts.
