Our lawyers have many years of experience representing clients before the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC, based in Washington, D.C., exercises regulatory authority over telecommunications, radio and television broadcasting, cable television, electronic equipment, and the Internet. ALG’s lawyers have represented clients on FCC licensing concerning telecommunications (wireline and wireless), broadcasting stations, policy and rulemaking matters (including the assignment of new radio-frequency spectrum), political advertising, electronic equipment, small cell deployment and siting, and other issues. Our lawyers also regularly advise clients on FCC actions and developments of relevance to them.
In addition to advising our telecommunications clients on FCC matters, we also advise them on issues arising from other federal agencies, including the Federal Trade Commission, as well as relevant state agencies. Moreover, we advise foreign governments on matters relating to their laws that govern telecommunications, including the Internet, and advise U.S. companies on off-shore telecommunications matters.
