Wireline to Wireless, Untangling the Complexity of Telecommunications Law
November 20th, 2017
| Richard M. Williams
The ubiquitous wireless phone. A telecommunications device designed to make it easier to speak and communicate with other people. Telecommunications laws, on the other hand, are very complex. Fortunately, HKQ Law has assisted the telecommunications industry with diverse issues since the dawn of cellular phone technology – back when cell phones weighed two and a half pounds and cost as much as $4,000.
We provide a broad range of telecommunications advice and services regarding regulation, transactions, and disputes not just in the wireless sector, but also for wireline and broadband, satellite, Internet and e-commerce, as well as information technology. Over the years, our clients have included some of the largest service providers operating within the United States.
Legal matters handled by HKQ Law telecommunications attorneys include (but are not limited to):
- Land use issues (including zoning and subdivision/land development issues)
- Leases, agreements of sale, easements and licenses
- Facility location, development and construction issues
- Real estate, contract and trespass disputes
- Federal and state regulatory approvals for various transactional matters
- Wireless infrastructure compliance
HKQ Law’s telecommunication attorneys aggressively pursue clients’ interests in litigation disputes and matters. We routinely represent clients before local Zoning Hearing Boards, Planning Commissions and Governing Bodies, and Federal and State trial and appellate courts.
The telecommunications industry is constantly evolving. At HKQ Law, we’re not content to merely keep pace. We strive to anticipate changes. Our knowledge in telecommunications law is unparalleled in Northeastern Pennsylvania. It’s no wonder that one of our telecommunications lawyers, Attorney Richard Williams, provided significant input in the creation and development of Pennsylvania’s Wireless Broadband Collocation Act.
