Cable & Telecommunications

    Thirty years ago, the cable and telecommunications industry looked vastly different than it does today.

    And throughout those years, Coblentz attorneys have not only had a hand in the myriad changes—Richard Patch has drafted several major pieces of state legislation—but 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. We have represented numerous cable operators and provide counsel in the diverse areas of direct broadcast satellite, broadband, and wireless technologies. We’ve handled virtually every kind of case—both in the regulatory compliance arena as well as in business transactional matters—from unfair practices to major antitrust cases, and from franchise transfers to disputes over construction contracts.

    No matter 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.
