“the fast-paced regulatory environment in telecommunications today demands a turn-key solution",
Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) November 11, 2010
CSI announces its retention of Lawrence Freedman, as its counsel, of legal and regulatory counsel to establish a dynamic and full service approach to enhance the quality and range of services CSI can provide to its clients.
Lawrence “Larry” Freedman and Fleischman and Harding LLP (a thirty year old communications law firm based in Washington, DC), CSI’s new Counsel, have pioneered and taken an industry leadership role in the area of real estate and telecommunications transactions, or, “wired communities.” Now well into their second decade specializing specifically in this area, they have represented a wide range of developers, owners, and managers on transactions from the most sophisticated joint venture, to a host of simple, streamlined, marketing and access agreements.
This engagement marks the enhancement of CSI’s services to clients to a full ‘turn-key’ solution. CSI will, with the assistance of its Counsel, facilitate the selection of a telecommunications provider and the negotiation of a definitive agreement with the selected provider. By ‘turn-key’ CSI will, with counsel, under one roof, offer all the expertise required to attain such arrangements, including technical, operational, and, importantly, legal, and regulatory.
According to CSI Principal Leo Delgado, “we have made this a priority because we realize that, often, the technical and operational challenges of putting together a real estate- telecommunications transaction are more easily overcome—the more important challenge, and the area where we can add even greater value, is assisting with the strategic, legal, and regulatory components of the transaction.”
As CSI Principal Jason Scutt observed, “the fast-paced regulatory environment in telecommunications today demands such attention – witness, for example, the “game changing” activities in Washington DC right now where the Federal Communications Commission and Congress are re-writing the rules, and the fundamental assumptions, associated with deploying telecommunications and broadband services. We will now have an ‘anchor’ right in the middle of these telecommunications developments while at the same time possess targeted, focused, assistance on the deals we need to move forward.”
