Telecommunications

Our telecommunications attorneys understand that development time to market is critical, so we proactively partner with clients to learn their specific needs, goals, and concerns to best help them achieve their business objectives in the most timely and cost-effective manner possible.

Overview

Barclay Damon’s Telecommunications Practice Area attorneys have significant experience assisting clients with the acquisition and permitting of wireless communications facilities. Our attorneys have represented cellular and personal communications services (PCS) providers, fixed wireless communications carriers, internet companies, resellers of long-distance air time, telecommunications equipment and manufacturing companies, and voice and data switching companies. We are intimately familiar with federal, NYS, and local laws and regulations that govern every element of constructing and expanding telecommunications facilities and actively study evolving applicable case law across the country.

Our telecommunications attorneys understand that development time to market is critical, so we proactively partner with each client to learn their specific needs, goals, and concerns to best help them achieve their business objectives in the most timely and cost-effective manner possible.

Our telecommunications attorneys routinely assist clients with matters involving network development, including:

  • Building access and antenna siting
  • Zoning and permitting and land use approvals
  • Corporate, real property, and litigation matters
  • Entitlement compliance
  • Environmental review
  • Leasing, purchasing, and master agreements, including with major wireless communications carriers and NYS departments and agencies, municipalities, and public utility companies.

We partner with clients to educate municipalities about wireless technology, network design, existing service gaps, changes in the law, and the need for additional wireless facilities to ensure adequate and reliable wireless coverage. Our attorneys develop strong relationships with local public officials, frequently present before municipal boards, and strive to achieve our client’s development schedules in accordance with their unique needs.

Representative Experience
