The following statement can be attributed to Bryan Tramont, Managing Partner of the Washington, D.C. communications and technology law firm Wilkinson Barker Knauer, LLP: “All of us at Wilkinson Barker congratulate our friend and partner, Kathleen Abernathy, on her appointment, effective March 1, 2010, as Chief Legal Officer and Executive Vice President, Regulatory and Government Affairs for Frontier Communications Corporation. Kathleen’s enormous talent, sweeping expertise and stellar reputation in the telecommunications industry are widely known, so we congratulate Frontier as well. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Kathleen in her new role with Frontier.”

Kathleen Q. Abernathy stated: “Deciding to leave a law firm that I know is without peer in the communications bar has been very difficult for me, but the opportunity that Frontier presented was too good to pass up.

My connections to all my friends at Wilkinson Barker are strong, and I know they always will be.”
