The attorneys in Kutak Rock’s Telecommunications Group have decades of experience litigating disputes for telecommunications-related companies and assets before regulatory agencies and in state and federal courts. Our experience encompasses pole attachment, building access, rights-of-way and other real property disputes; the defense of regulatory investigations and audits; appeals of regulatory actions and decisions; and compliance with government subpoenas and information requests. In addition, we have:

  • Successfully defended a carrier in putative class actions alleging misleading billing descriptions under state law causes of action and Section 201(b) of the Federal Communications Act.
  • Successfully defended a carrier from an attempt to exclude the carrier from a private network linking companies in the automotive sector.
  • Represented an owner of spectrum rights in a dispute regarding the development of WiMax service.
  • Counseled a carrier in developing arbitration and class action waiver provisions for inclusion in the carrier’s terms and conditions.

We also serve as regulatory counsel in bankruptcy and debtor/creditor cases, advising clients regarding the potential implications, under state and federal rules, of regulated asset transfers.
