Areas of Practice

Telecommunications law encompasses a broad array of legal disciplines. The practice is focused on addressing issues that affect businesses and governmental entities. By remaining current with FCC and state regulations and policies, and simultaneously understanding the technology that drive these policies, this firm is uniquely situated to offer both technical and legal expertise.

The firm frequently assists in the identification of client needs, preparation of requests for proposal or quote (RFP or RFQ), the analysis of the options offered, and ultimate recommendations addressing equipment and service options. By spending time doing a careful analysis of clients' existing telecommunications environment(s) and understanding clients’ long and short-term goals, we have been able to secure premium services with optimum pricing and terms.
Clients include multinational corporations, law firms, telecommunications consulting firms, as well as small to medium size businesses that require the expertise of their larger corporate brethren but do not have either the time or money to invest in bringing such expertise in-house full time.
Consulting Services

Telecommunications management is loaded with complexities, including technical, billing and legal.  We bring years of experience as telecommunications insiders to help companies manage telecommunications planning and expense as efficiently as possible. Having spent years as a network designer and internal telecommunications cost manager, this firm, on its own, as well as in partnership with other members of the Society of Telecommunications Consultants, can assist any business to make the most of its telecommunications products and services.
