FCC Enforcement

Nobody likes to get caught up in an FCC enforcement investigation.

But when it happens, companies of all sizes turn to WBK to help them avoid or minimize FCC enforcement action.  

FCC enforcement is a highly specialized practice that is different than FCC policy and rulemaking activities.  Clients bring us their enforcement work because of our demonstrated record of success, which flows from our vast expertise and experience.  In recent years, we have handled approximately 100 FCC investigations, covering virtually every area of substantive regulation.  As a result, our attorneys know all the ins and outs of FCC enforcement.  We also benefit from the unique perspective of the Enforcement Bureau’s longest-serving Chief, who created and organized the Bureau and led it under FCC Chairmen of both parties before coming to WBK in 2005.

WBK recognizes that every enforcement matter is important.  Our role goes far beyond the mechanics of dealing with an investigation and guiding a client through the process.  From Day 1, we focus on achieving the best possible result.  We work closely with clients to develop and implement the best strategic and advocacy approach, tailored to the specific facts, law, and client goals at issue.  We are equally at home negotiating a settlement with the FCC or fighting back against alleged liability.  And, no matter how a given investigation develops, we’re never satisfied unless and until the client gets the best possible outcome.
