Lockridge Grindal Nauen's utilities and technology practice consists of three main areas:
The firm represents local, long distance, and wireless providers before state and federal regulatory agencies throughout the nation, on both domestic and international matters. The firm appears before those agencies to secure operating authority, transfer ownership, set rates and litigate complaints on its clients' behalf.
In addition, the firm helps Internet, e-commerce, and other technology based businesses with business formation, branding distribution and corporate governance issues.
The practice group provides assistance to both providers and large volume consumers of utilities/technology services in negotiating and drafting contracts, resolving service complaints, analyzing tariffs and other service options and disputing proposals, both regulatory and legislative, adverse to their business interests. Firm attorneys appear before legislatures, regulatory agencies and in court for these clients.
Where administrative action has been insufficient to satisfy the clients' needs, the firm has litigated a variety of matters in court. When such action is necessary, Lockridge Grindal Nauen brings its full range of business law services, including intellectual property, corporate, employment and environmental law expertise.
