Cable & Telecommunications

Thirty years ago, the cable and telecommunications industry looked vastly different than it does today. And throughout those thirty years, Coblentz attorneys have not only had a hand in the myriad changes...

Richard Patch has drafted several major pieces of state legislation—but, in fact, have also been relentless in finding innovative solutions to the complex and ever-shifting legal and regulatory challenges our clients face.

Our knowledge of the industry runs deep, and our breadth of experience is unparalleled. There’s not a cable operator we haven’t represented, and we also provide counsel in the diverse areas of direct broadcast satellite, broadband, and other wireless technologies. We’ve handled almost every kind of case—both in the regulatory compliance arena as well as in business transactional matters—from unfair practices to major antitrust cases, from franchise transfers to mundane disputes over construction contracts.

No matter what the case, our approach is the same: We work shoulder-to-shoulder with our clients to give them a leg up in the face of fierce competition and provide counsel that’s at once comprehensive, strategic, and sound.
