Cable & Telecom Transactions

Our team has deep experience structuring, negotiating and consummating every manner of communications transaction. We evaluate ownership restrictions to help strategize on deal structure, negotiate deal terms, assess financing documents, and guide clients through the complex regulatory approval processes of the FCC, FTC, DOJ, states, and local franchising authorities. We also negotiate conditions where necessary, advise on post-close obligations and ensure compliance with any third party contractual requirements.
