Our Approach

Our team has deep experience in handling all aspects of communications transactions and investments. We evaluate Federal Communications Commission (FCC) market and foreign ownership restrictions to help strategize on deal structure; we conduct due diligence on targets; we negotiate deal terms; and we assess financing documents. We also guide clients through the complex approval processes of the FCC, Federal Trade Commission (FTC), U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), and state and local public utility commissions and franchising authorities. In addition, we negotiate conditions where necessary, advise on post-close obligations, and ensure compliance with any third-party contractual requirements.
