Telecommunications and Utilities

Our attorneys have significant experience handling telecommunications, natural gas, transportation and other utility matters.

What We Do

Led by the former executive director of the Nebraska Public Service Commission, our team routinely represents telecommunications carriers, natural gas utilities and transportation companies in regulatory matters, arbitrations and legal proceedings. The scope of services we provide to utilities is extensive—from negotiation of interconnection and franchise agreements to advocacy before regulators and legislative bodies, from rate making and complaint proceedings to leading the effort in Nebraska on broadband deployment. When the matter is complex and your company needs a solution, we find the way.
