Telecommunications & Rights-of-Way

Public Law

In the highly regulated, rapidly changing telecommunications arena, it seems as if there are new issues facing municipalities almost every day. With telecommunications infrastructure representing a key driver of economic development, municipalities need to not only manage these challenges — including public rights-of-way (PROWs) through telecommunications providers — but also understand the various options for maximizing value and ensuring continued growth over the long term.

Walter Haverfield’s public law attorneys have a long track record of advising municipalities on how to manage all of their telecommunications agreements. We stay abreast of the numerous regulatory and technological changes to ensure our clients are not only compliant but are also in the best position to negotiate agreements that are most beneficial for the community.
