Capitalize on Communication Opportunities

The communications industry is competitive, dynamic, and impacts virtually every business. The business endeavors of our telecommunications clients have exponentially increased in importance. Timely, sage legal advice is more business-critical than ever to meet regulatory changes or be more competitive.

Moye White provides counsel on regulatory compliance and litigation matters, as well as guidance on land use, zoning and municipal permitting, contracts, mergers and acquisitions, and customer and carrier disputes. Our experience includes serving interexchange carriers, competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs), wireless carriers, VoIP providers, television, cable, and satellite networks.

Moye White’s Communications team regularly represents clients in arbitrations, mediations, and state and federal court proceedings. We have deep experience arguing before local and state government agencies, including state utility commissions throughout the United States, as well as the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Federal Communications Commission.

Because we are a full-service business and litigation law firm, the communications team has access to other Moye White attorneys and internal resources, enabling us to meet all our telecommunications clients’ corporate, real estate, intellectual property, employment, litigation, or other legal business needs.
