Hogan Lovells US LLP

There is no better firm‘, according to one client, than Hogan Lovells US LLP, which provides clients with a broad range of regulatory services, as well as counsel on high-profile telecoms litigation. The firm is distinguished by its ability to assemble and represent stakeholder coalitions in responding to developing issues, such as practice head Michele Farquhar‘s work for PTC-220, a consortium comprising leading rail companies and trade associations, which pertained to its implementation of new Positive Train Control safety systems and included spectrum buyout and swap arrangements, as well as substantial FCC representation in rulemaking and waiver proceedings. The firm also advises satellite television operator DISH Network on its proposal to deploy 5G services in the 12Ghz band, and its attempts to prove the viability of the proposal to the FCC. Wireless spectrum policy and ‘telehealth’ expert Trey Hanbury led the representation of DISH, and is also assisting T-Mobile in securing third-party support for its merger with Sprint, in one of the largest and most contested wireless transactions in recent years. Spectrum policy expert Ari Fitzgerald recently acted for SNR Wireless in negotiations concerning bidding credits from the FCC’s 2015 AWS-3 auction, following a 2017 court victory establishing SNR’s eligibility for the credits. Another key contact, privacy and communications law expert Mark Brennan, handles privacy and cybersecurity work for the Internet Association, a trade association with members including Google, Facebook and Amazon, in connection with the FCC’s informational injuries workshop and the impact of GDPR on US-based internet companies.
