EDUCATIONAL ADVISORY: Primer on Transfer of Control
Our law firm has represented numerous clients by assisting them in the navigation of both the FCC, and State Transfer of Control processes. All too often, we are alerted to such transactions only AFTER they have been consummated. With few exceptions, any time companies close a transaction involving regulated telecommunications assets without first obtaining FCC authorization, we must not only take corrective measures necessary to procure authorization, we must then contend with the resulting FCC Enforcement Bureau investigation.
The purpose of this Educational Advisory is to share our firm’s collective experience representing clients before the FCC’s Wireline Competition, International, Wireless, and Enforcement Bureaus in all forms of transactional matters.
