Cooley's Communications practice provides comprehensive advice and assistance to established market leaders and growth-oriented companies in the communications industry. We have represented clients in a wide range of legal and business issues, including operational decisions such as capacity purchase and interconnection arrangements; complex technology licensing, transfer and development agreements; strategic alliances; and international tax concerns. We have significant experience representing companies in this industry in litigation involving contract, tariff and billing disputes, licensing disputes, consumer class action claims and intellectual property rights.
Our communications client base includes both U.S. and global companies of all sizes, including companies involved in voice, video, data, fiber, cable, satellite, wireless and broadband. We also represent investment banks, private investment and venture funds and other financing sources for telecommunication entities. Several of our attorneys have served as in-house counsel to leading telecommunication companies.
Our breadth of experience gives us an in-depth understanding of the complexity of the sector and our clients' strategies. We capitalize on this technical and business knowledge by combining it with our Firm's substantive legal capabilities to achieve quick, cost-effective commercial results for our clients. For our larger clients who have diverse business lines throughout the industry, we ensure that our advocacy on particular matters does not undermine their broader corporate positions. In addition, our extensive contacts with investors and potential strategic partners enable us to make introductions to appropriate resources when necessary, further supporting our clients' business goals.
