04 May 2011
WASHINGTON, D.C., 4 May 2011 — As a service to clients and interested professionals, lawyers in the Hogan Lovells Technology, Media and Telecommunications industry team have launched a new blog titled, “International Spectrum Review,” available at www.hlspectrumreview.com.
Written by lawyers from six countries, the blog focuses on regulatory and related items where Hogan Lovells has a unique opportunity to inform businesses about developing radio spectrum issues and news. Companies and organizations focused on spectrum issues are not limited to the telecommunications field because spectrum issues affect many different sectors, including broadcasting, transportation, medical devices, public safety, M&A transactions, and investment banks. Hogan Lovells lawyers bring a valuable insider perspective to the subject, having worked for wireless companies and trade associations and having served in high-level government positions with responsibility for regulating the wireless industry.
“The International Spectrum Review is one way Hogan Lovells is helping our clients and the broader industry stay on top of the latest trends affecting their businesses,” said blog editor and Brussels partner Gerry Oberst. “The timely, global content will provide meaningful analysis and useful context on developments in this rapidly evolving field.”
Major topics of the blog will address auctions, broadcasting, mobile and fixed wireless, short range and unlicensed devices, and spectrum management, among others.
The blog's authors are: Mark Brennan (Associate, Washington, D.C.); Daniel Brenner (Partner, Washington, D.C.); Michele Farquhar (Partner, Washington, D.C.), Ari Fitzgerald (Partner, Washington, D.C.); Andreas Gruenwald (Partner, Berlin); Gabriela Kennedy (Partner, Hong Kong); Pauline Le Bousse (Associate, Paris); Winston Maxwell (Partner, Paris); Gerald Oberst (Partner, Brussels); and Conor Ward (Partner, London).
Hogan Lovells advises clients on spectrum-related aspects of merger review and competition policy, licensing, spectrum policy, regulatory compliance, ITU matters, capital raising, law enforcement issues, and foreign investment.
