Paige K. Fronabarger
Paige Fronabarger is a practical, hands-on lawyer with over twenty years’ experience working on a broad range of corporate and commercial transactions across the rapidly changing communications industry. Her clients include large and small radio and television broadcasters, domestic and international voice and data carriers, cable television, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), wireless and broadband service providers, infrastructure companies, investors and financial institutions.
During her career, she has successfully completed hundreds of transactions involving the sale, lease, and exchange of radio, television, telecommunications and information service companies and assets.
Paige also routinely assists lenders, private equity investors and public and private companies to navigate and comply with the complex legal requirements associated with acquisitions, recapitalizations, leveraged buyouts, secured financing and public debt financing of FCC regulated businesses. This work includes due diligence, negotiation of required transaction documentation and preparing, prosecuting and ultimately obtaining any transaction approvals required to be obtained from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), each of the 51 State Public Utility Commissions (PUCs) and local franchising authorities. While Paige handles most of the small to mid-size transactions directly, for extremely large transactions, she typically serves as outside FCC/State PUC regulatory counsel complimenting the client’s corporate team and outside corporate counsel.
In addition, Paige has worked on a wide range of commercial transactions in the communications and technology industries, including spectrum leasing, local marketing and time brokerage agreements, tower siting, network construction and deployment contracts, customer and supplier agreements and right-of-way access agreements. In this role, Paige helps clients with outsourcing business processes, developing specifications and requests for proposals, evaluating suppliers, drafting and negotiating the terms of contracts, implementing best practices, ensuring contract compliance and resolving contract disputes.
