Helping You with Telecommunication Decisions

The attorneys at Parsons Behle & Latimer can help you to understand telecommunications laws and regulations.

The telecommunications group at Parsons Behle & Latimer represents both telecommunications carriers and consumers of telecommunications services before the Federal Communications Commission, the Utah Public Service Commission and in state and federal courts. We have experience assisting local exchange carriers, inter-exchange carriers and VOIP providers in complying with state regulatory requirements, obtaining certificates of public convenience and necessity, regulatory approval of mergers and acquisitions, rulemaking proceedings, and in filing state tariffs. Our attorneys have represented several large carriers in litigation over inter-carrier compensation, interconnection agreements, traffic pumping, access charges, taxation, and in defining the extent of state and federal jurisdiction over telecommunications services. We also counsel clients who are consumers of telecommunications services in contracting with carriers and in resolving service complaints and billing disputes.
