U.S. & International Satellite Licensing
LMI Advisors assists clients in navigating U.S. and foreign regulations governing spectrum sharing and licensing, as well as International Telecommunications Union and regional telecommunications regulatory meetings, national rulemakings, the development of requirements to facilitate implementation of spectrum-based operations, and negotiations among spectrum users to develop workable sharing arrangements. We can guide you through the complex rules governing terrestrial wireless and satellite service issues, as well as lawful interception, data protection, and privacy concerns. LMI Advisors has extensive expertise in global satellite market access, including traditional earth station operations, maritime services and in-flight connectivity. These licensing activities, along with our participation in international telecommunication regulatory activities, create strong relationships with regulators around the world.
LMI Advisors supports clients operating in the wider telecommunications space. We have advised telecommunications regulators, ministries, and industry bodies around the world on communications regulation and policy matters. We also have extensive experience advising global communications operators and vendors on related compliance issues, new market entry, major projects (such as network expansion and infrastructure sharing) and drafting and negotiating the underlying commercial agreements and filings that facilitate these transactions.
