Our Practice Areas
Telecommunications and information technology are not like any other business, and a telecom/IT lawyer is not like any other business lawyer. There may be contracts to negotiate, transactions to maneuver and mergers and acquisitions to hammer out, but they are highly technical matters with significant regulatory oversight.
With such complicated matters, it can make an important difference for your attorney to have a strong background in telecom. A lawyer with expertise in working with telecom/IT businesses and customers will have an in-depth understanding of the issues you face, including ones you might not even realize.

Obtaining FCC Permission
In order to conduct business in the telecommunication industry, you nearly always must obtain some sort of license — often, multiple licenses. Ben Bronston has a vast understanding of state and federal licensing procedures and he can help you identify and obtain the licenses you will need.
The telecom industry is heavily regulated, and there is significant red tape involved in conducting telecommunications business. There are licensing requirements, filing requirements, reporting requirements and other necessary initial and ongoing steps you must take with the Federal Communications Commission. Ben Bronston can help you cut through the red tape with customized compliance packages.
Transactions are an absolutely essential part of the telecommunications business — it’s not a business unless there are transactions. Those transactions require due diligence, compliance with regulation, and other concerns that a skilled telecom lawyer can help you address. Ben Bronston has handled hundreds of telecom transactions.
Mergers and Acquistions
Whenever a telecommunications company acquires another and merges it with their own, there must be a purchase agreement, due diligence must be conducted, and there may be significant rules and regulations that require compliance. Ben Bronston can help you navigate the myriad of legal issues you must contend with during an M&A transaction.
