International Telecommunications

As telecommunications make the world smaller, the reach of telecommunications law has become broader. Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, PLC attorneys assist foreign-owned companies in navigating U.S. regulatory hurdles such as obtaining Section 214 authorizations for international service or acquiring domestic radio licenses. We also work with Spanish language networks and program suppliers in reaching United States customers.

At the same time, our assistance to U.S. companies in extending their reach internationally includes:

  • Acquiring foreign broadcast stations;
  • Licensing international broadcast stations;
  • Establishing data centers and service centers in Europe, Asia and Latin America;
  • Making overseas funds transfer arrangements in compliance with Treasury regulations; and
  • Registering U.S. trademarks internationally.

We also assist developing countries in establishing an FCC-like regulatory framework for their telecom infrastructure.
