Telecommunications Law pertains to electronic communications and broadcasting systems throughout the United States. This area is heavily regulated by the federal government and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Telecommunications Law is highly complex and technical and changes frequently. It is helpful to have an attorney who concentrates in this area to help guide clients through this fast-changing field.

In 1996, the Telecommunications Act aimed to tear down the many regulatory walls preventing telecommunications companies from providing better customer service. Although the Telecommunications Act was a massive step forward, new regulations have been necessary to address technological changes in the industry. The Telecommunications Act could not have foreseen the development of wireless services, VoIP, video conferencing, and satellite/cable television services. As a result, many new and emerging legal issues continue to confront attorneys and telecommunications industry members.
