First Responder and Homeland Security Issues
Our attorneys advised the City of New York, as well as other municipalities, on emergency communications policy, regulation and management; critical infrastructure protection; and other homeland security matters. The scope of the work included regulatory and legislative counseling, as well as representation before the FCC and in other relevant federal forums. We assisted the City in obtaining frequencies for its public safety communications needs. Our representation of New York pre-dated the attacks of 9/11 and we were able to help the City restore communications systems in the aftermath.
