Telecommunications & Technology
ACG’s team is at the forefront of complex issues facing the telecommunications and technology industries. Whether spectrum allocations, mergers and acquisitions, privacy regulation, or the emerging Internet of Things, ACG has the substantive expertise and relationships necessary to assist clients to navigate and succeed in this complex policy environment. Several of our principals and advisors have worked on antitrust, technology, and telecommunications issues in their roles as Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information at the National Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA), Deputy Assistant Secretary for Technology Policy at the Department of Commerce (DOC), and Chief Counsel of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Stakeholders and parties to major telecommunications mergers and regulatory actions benefit from our firm’s experience at the policy intersection of telecommunications and competition law. Our team also monitors and identifies relevant telecommunications proceedings for clients to be become engaged in. For example, we have provided clients information about consumer data privacy, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) oversight, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) oversight, spectrum usage, rural broadband, and autonomous vehicles.
ACG can help clients facilitate meetings with key telecommunications policy officials in both Chambers of Congress, at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Department of Commerce, and within the Administration. Our relationships also extend to third-party stakeholders and trade associations, which can play an important role when amplifying your message.
