Jeffrey Epstein, Former General Counsel and Senior Executive at TerreStar Networks, Joins Space and Satellite Practice at Hogan Lovells

McLean, VA, 1 August 2017 – Hogan Lovells announced today that Jeffrey Epstein has joined the firm’s leading Space and Satellite practice as counsel in Northern Virginia. A seasoned satellite industry lawyer and business professional, Epstein was most recently President and Chief Executive Officer of publicly-traded satellite company, TerreStar Networks Inc.

“Jeff brings a real roll up your sleeves, entrepreneurial attitude to his practice. With a combination of business and private practice experience, he has deep and strategic experience with some of the most highly regulated industries and challenging bet-the-company transactions. As the space and satellite industry continues to grow in the private sector, Jeff will be a valuable asset to our practice and clients,” said Randy Segal and Steve Kaufman, co-heads of the Space and Satellite practice.

Emily Yinger, Managing Partner of Hogan Lovells' Northern Virginia office, added, “We’re thrilled to welcome someone with Jeff’s experience and caliber to the firm. Northern Virginia has long been a hub for both startup and expanding space and satellite companies, and as a firm it’s important that we grow and evolve in the new areas of space innovation. The Northern Virginia office has spent over 30 years advising many of the region’s leading companies. Jeff’s arrival continues our commitment to the region and provides clients with the resources they need for their own success.”

Over the past decade, Epstein has acted as outside counsel, focused on the development and deployment of global satellite systems, and the complex strategic investments that come with those ventures. He has advised on the corporate and securities/capital markets needs of numerous companies from startup to publicly-traded, including distressed companies and complex restructuring situations.

In addition to his time with TerreStar Networks, Epstein served as Chief Operating Officer and Chief Legal Officer of wireless services engineering and deployment company, Connectivity Solutions, Inc. He began his career as a staff attorney in the Division of Corporation Finance at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), then worked as an associate at an international law firm, followed by in-house positions as corporate and securities counsel at a Fortune 500 bank holding company.

“For nearly 15 years I’ve had the pleasure of working with Hogan Lovells on every side of the table and at every stage of development,” said Epstein. “With their unique blend of legal, business, and technical experience, they’ve earned their reputation as problem solvers and deal closers. I’m excited to join the firm and look forward to the opportunity to support and grow a leading practice for satellite system operators, investors, and manufacturers.”

Epstein earned his LL.M. from Georgetown University Law Center in 1997, a J.D. from St. Thomas University School of Law in 1995, and a B.A. from the University of Florida in 1991.
