- Worked with two of the largest telecommunications companies in the United States, wanted to merge in order to become a more effective and efficient provider in the wireless, broadband, video, voice and data markets. The decision to allow the merger was stalled at the FCC with no final decision in sight. Our client enlisted our help in building support on the Hill to prompt the FCC to take action
- Highlighting the benefits in service and savings to American consumers, we were able to cast the merger in a favorable light and build support for it among Members of Congress. Further, using our ability to navigate through both the FCC and Congress, we were able to bridge the differences between the two bodies and craft a solution agreeable to all parties involved.
- We were able to get the FCC to approve the historic merger in a timely manner on terms favorable to the client.
