It’s mission critical for providers in an industry like communications, where rapidly changing technologies, opportunities and risks require companies to be nimble and resourceful, and layers of evolving state and federal regulation can trip up even the most established provider.
Our Communications attorneys provide comprehensive business and strategic planning advice to communications and information technology companies, ranging from some of the biggest global providers to startups and emerging enterprises. We don’t just use the standard toolkit, we offer innovative solutions to help you achieve your business and operational objectives.
As counsel to buyers, sellers and investors, our integrated team brings to the table a proficiency in a full range of corporate transactions—mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations, joint ventures, leveraged buyouts, tender offers and restructurings in and out of bankruptcy proceedings—and the regulatory know-how required to help clients solve the full range of issues that can arise as part of a complex transaction inside this highly regulated space. We craft practical and effective solutions to due diligence and deal structuring issues, identify and mitigate potential regulatory risks and enforcement exposure, and secure required federal and state regulatory approvals.
Outside of the deal process, our attorneys advise clients in the formulation, revision and implementation of business plans to ensure that they keep pace with the prevailing and developing competitive, legal and regulatory climate. Clients rely on our deep knowledge of the communications legal and regulatory landscape to help mitigate risks and maximize opportunities presented by existing rules or effectuated by changing the rules.
