Wiley has one of the world's largest and most experienced international telecommunications and internet practices. It is comprised of attorneys and engineers with extensive experience in both senior government policy-making and private practice. Our clients include established companies and new entrants providing telecommunications, Internet, media, satellite, and earth station services throughout the world, as well as major trade associations, equipment manufacturers, and governments. Operating through a wide circle of contacts both in the United States and in regulatory and commercial bodies abroad, we are helping our clients shape the rapidly changing landscape that governs the provision of international telecommunications services today.
In a global environment that is constantly changing, we pride ourselves on our ability to provide creative, strategic, and yet practical solutions to evolving legal problems. By applying our deep practical knowledge about how government decision-makers operate, we have proven to be highly effective advocates for our clients.
Wiley has extensive experience representing international telecommunications service providers before the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Administration, and Congress, as well as before other governments and international policy-making forums.
The depth and breadth of our experience at the highest levels of national decision-making regarding telecommunications and information and communications technology (ICT) issues are unmatched. Members of our Practice have long been active participants in the development of U.S. telecommunications policy. For example, Ambassador David A. Gross is one of the world's foremost experts on international telecommunications, having addressed the United Nations (UN) General Assembly and led more U.S. delegations to major international telecommunications conferences than anyone in modern history.
