Group Leader Bruce Olcott has extensive experience in spectrum work, and is assisting Boeing in its development of a global non-geostationary satellite communications network, including spectrum work before the International Telecommunications Union. Olcott also acted for Eutelsat in challenging FCC proposals regarding the re-purposing of C-band spectrum for terrestrial wireless use, and also handled Eutelsat’s subsequent negotiations with other leading satellite operators connected to the FCC’s proposal. Privacy and consumer protection specialist Michael Hazzard has a strong track record in work relating to cloud communications services, and defends CallFire in consumer protection cases, particularly those involving the TCPA.
