Communications Infrastructure and Access

The CommLaw Group’s Communications Infrastructure & Access attorneys offer a wide range of services to new entrants and established communications providers seeking access to private and public property for the installation and maintenance of communications facilities. We provide counsel, advice and implementation support in the following areas (see details below):
  • Public Rights-of-Way and Cable Franchises
  • Pole Attachments
  • Private Rights-of-Way
  • Real Estate and Building Access Issues

We also engage in regulatory advocacy on behalf of clients. For example, representing the Greenfield Service Provider Coalition, the firm successfully lobbied against FCC prohibition of joint marketing and other contractual relationships with Greenfield developers or home owners associations (HOAs) deemed necessary to ensure that service providers recoup their investments in deploying communications infrastructure to Multiple Dwelling Unit (MDU) properties and other Greenfield developments.

On the other side of the token, the firm counsels a variety of property owners on telecommunications and video access issues and policies.
